2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods with acceptable restrictions
according to guideline
other: DIN ISO 2176-97 (by 3.1) (Petroleum products - Lubricating grease - Determination of dropping point (ISO 2176:1995))
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
other: dropping point
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
52 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 1 013 hPa

There are no values given for pressure, dropping point assumed to be measured at ambient pressure (ca. 1013 hPa).

Description of key information

Melting point = 52 °C at ca. 1013 hPa (DIN ISO 2176-97, dropping point)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
52 °C

Additional information

Atmospheric pressure not reported, assumed to be ca. 1013 hPa based on method used.
