Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

relative density
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
Experimental date: 04 April 2019
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
The study was conducted according to an internationally recognised method, and under GLP. The substance is adequately identified, but some data on composit ion is missing. Therefore validation applies with restrictions.
according to guideline
OECD Guideline 109 (Density of Liquids and Solids)
Version / remarks:
according to guideline
EU Method A.3 (Relative Density)
Version / remarks:
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
issued 01/08/2019
Type of method:
pycnometer method
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Physical State/Appearance: Pale yellow extremely viscous liquid
Storage Conditions: Room temperature (15 to 25°C), dark, in a clear glass bottle within a black bag
Dynamic viscosity of test material:
No data. But ue to the extremely viscous nature of the test item, a modification of the procedure normally used for solid test items was employed.
Key result
relative density
1.01 other: relative density is dimensionless
20 °C

Determination 1: 0.99

Determination 2: 1.02

The duplicate determinations fell within the estimated accuracy of the method (± 0.05 units).

Therefore the average value is retained.

The substance is as dense as water.
Executive summary:

The density of the substance was determined according to OECD 109/EU A3 guideline, using the pycnometer method, with displacement liquid due to high viscosity of the test item.

Two replicates were performed; results were consistent, so the average value was retained.

The relative density D20/4 is 1.01.

Description of key information

The substance is as dense as water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:

Additional information

A reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized OECD/EC method, is available.

Despite minor restrictions due to incomplete test item identification, it is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
