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.
