Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002
Deviations:
not specified
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
other: EEC Directive 92/69 A.9, ISO2719
Deviations:
not specified

Key result
Flash point:
178 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: closed cup method

The main test was performed in duplicate. For each test, test item was liquefied at about 80 °C. A clear flash point was observed at a test item temperature of 178 °C and 176 °C, respectively. The mean value was calculated to be 177 °C at the actual atmospheric pressure of 98.5 kPa.

Conclusions:
The flash point of test substance was determined to be 178°C at 1013 hPa, closed cup
Executive summary:

In this guideline (ISO 2719) study conducted to GLP standards, the test material (EC 438-340-0) was determined to have a flash point of 178°C at 1013 hPa (closed cup).
