Executive summary:

INTRODUCTION

Hazardous physico-chemical properties of the test item have been determined. Methods employed were designed to be compatible with Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008, Part A: Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties

Method

The flash point was determined using a closed cup equilibrium method, designed to be compatible with Method A9 Flash Point of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Conclusion

The flash point of the test item has been determined to be 157 ± 2°C.

Description of key information

The flash point of the test substance was determined to be 157 +/- 2 °C using a closed cup equilibrium method following a GLP study compatible with EC test method A.9 (Atwal et al., 2010).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
