Additional information

The Freezing point of test chemical was determined with Freezing Temperature Method and it was determine to be less than -16.39 °C at 978.0 hPa

Other supporting studies from authoritative database and handbooks also suggest that the freezing point of test chemical was determined to be in the range of -20 degree C to -16.5 degree C.

Also, From EPI suit estimation software, freezing point of test substance was estimated to be -15.14 °C.
