Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Type of information:
read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Conducted according to standard however not under GLP
Justification for type of information:
A discussion and report on the read across strategy is given as an attachment in IUCLID Section 13.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
read-across: supporting information
according to guideline
other: ASTM D 5950
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
pour point
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
-60 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm
The measured pour point is -60°C according to ASTM D 5950 methodology.
Executive summary:

The pour point of the substance Hydrocarbons, C14-C19, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics has been measured at -60°C at 1 atm according to the ASTM D 5950 methodology.

Description of key information

There is no data available for Hydrocarbons, C13-C16, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics. Data is available for Hydrocarbons C14-C19, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics and based on an analogue approach, this data is used for read across to Hydrocarbons, C13-C16, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics.

The pour point of the substance Hydrocarbons, C14 -C19, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics is less than -20°C at 1 atm according to the ASTM D 5950 methodology.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-60 °C
