Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of the test item was determined at three different temperatures (30, 40 and 50 °C) following EU A.4 using the effusion method (weight loss). Vapour pressure was determined to be 1.04 Pa at 20 °C and 1.7 Pa at 25 °C, respectively.
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of the test item was determined following OECD 104 and EU A.4 using the effusion method (weight loss). Vapour pressure was examined at three different temperatures. All temperatures could be evaluated as they showed reproducible weight loss. For these temperatures, 1/T was plotted against log (P). The graph 1/T vs. log (P) showed a straight line with a correlation coefficient of - 0.9970. For the test item, the following vapour pressures at 20 °C and at 25 °C were calculated from the regression equation:

Vapour pressure at 20 °C: 1.04 Pa

Vapour pressure at 25 °C: 1.70 Pa
