The two determinations are within the validity criteria of the method: (less than 1% of difference).

No additional determination was performed.

 

Conclusions:
The density of the test item has been determined to be 945.8 kg/m3 at 20.0 +/- 0.1°C (mean of two determinations).
The relative density of the test item was determined to be D204 = 0.946.
Executive summary:

The study was performed in order to determine the density of test item according OECD 109, resp. EU A.3 guideline, using a pycnometer.

Description of key information

The density of the test item has been determined to be 945.8 kg/m3 at 20.0 +/- 0.1°C (mean of two determinations).

The relative density of the test item was determined to be D204 = 0.946.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
0.946

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to OECD 109/ EU A3 guideline is available.

It is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
