Key result
Flash point:
> 110 °C
Remarks on result:
no flash point up to 100°C

A preliminary test established that there was no flash point for the test material up to 110 °C. Two confirmatory tests on two different samples established that there was no flash point for the test material up to 110 °C when the correction for atmospheric pressure was applied.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the study, there was no flash point for the test material up to 110 °C when the correction for atmospheric pressure was applied.
Executive summary:

The surface tension of the test material was investigated in a study which was performed under GLP conditions and in accordance with the standardised guidelines EU method A.9, BS 3900 Part A14, 1986; BS 6664 Part 4, 1986; ISO 3679-1983; ASTM D3278 and D3734.

The test substance (nominally 2 mL) was introduced into the test chamber which was then closed. A preliminary measurement was carried out as a rangefinder. The range finder employed the rapid equilibrium mode, starting at 10.3 °C and increasing in 10 °C increments, with a 1 minute equilibration time, until a flash was observed or 110 °C was reached. The definitive test was then performed, starting at the last rangefinder temperature at which no flash was observed and employing the ramp mode, at a rate of 1.0 ° C/min. The test was continued until a flash was observed or to a maximum temperature of 30 °C above the start temperature up to a maximum of 110 °C. The preliminary test established that there was no flash point for the test material up to 110 °C. Two confirmatory tests on two different samples established that there was no flash point for the test material up to 110 °C when the correction for atmospheric pressure was applied.

Under the conditions of the study, there was no flash point for the test material up to 110 °C when the correction for atmospheric pressure was applied.

Additional information

The surface tension of the test material was investigated in a study which was performed under GLP conditions and in accordance with the standardised guidelines EU method A.9, BS 3900 Part A14, 1986; BS 6664 Part 4, 1986; ISO 3679-1983; ASTM D3278 and D3734. The study was assigned a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria for assessing data quality set forth by Klimisch et al. (1997).
