Description of key information

Melting/freezing point of the test material was determined in a GLP compliant study according to Method A1 Melting/Freezing Temperature of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008. In the pour point method, the sample was tilted to a horizontal position for a period of 5 seconds during which the sample was observed for signs of flow. This was done at intervals of 3 ºC starting at 46 ºC. Melting/freezing temperature of the test material was found to be less than -20 ºC (253 K).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-20 °C

Additional information

Freezing point of the substance was determined to be less than -20 ºC. Freezing point of NExBTL renewable diesel, a UVCB substance of similar composition to the substance, is -20 ºC.
