Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The pour point of Hydrocarbons, C11-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics is read across from other related substances. Hydrocarbons, C13-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics has a measured pour point of -27°C at 1013 hPa according to ISO 3016 method. Similarly, Hydrocarbons, C12-C15, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics has a measured pour point of -37°C according to ASTM D5950. These results are considered to be reliable and are used as weight of evidence that the registration substance, Hydrocarbons, C11-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics has a pour point of <-20°C.
