Description of key information

The melting point of Desmodur MT was testet according to DTA/DSC, this method corresponds to OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, Section 1 –Physical-Chemical Properties No: 113 “Screening Test for Thermal Stabilityand Stability in Air ” (adopted, 12thMay 1981). 
From -100 °C up to 450 °C no melting point could be observed. Even though the testitem showed no significant exothermal reaction, decomposition could be observedstarting at approx. 210 °C. An increased decomposition was determined starting at approx. 255 °C (Currenta, 2011).

Key value for chemical safety assessment
