Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Key result
relative density
1.82 kg/m³
20 °C

Aliquots of test material were weighed into the sample cell of known volume and placed into the pycnometer. Pressure readings were taken after pressurising the reference cell of known volume and then switching to the sample cell.


Measured volume: 56.7 cm3and 56.6 in two determinations

Certified volume: 56.6 cm3

Tolerance: ±0.5cm3

The density of the test material has been determined to be 1.82 g/ml at 21°C

Description of key information

The density of the test material has been determined to be 1.82 g/ml at 21°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:

Additional information

Relative density is the density of substance divided by the density of water at 4°C. As the density of water at this temperature is exactly 1 g/ml, the relative density has the same numerical value as the density determined at 20°C, but expressed without units.
