91 °C

Additional information

A flash point value of 91°C at 776 mmHg was reported in a reliable study conducted according to a closed-cup method ASTM D93. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study. In the same report, a flash point value of 109°C at 755 -759 mmHg was reported in a study conducted according to open-cup method ASTM D92.

A measured flash point of 91°C and boiling point of 245°C indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability in accordance with the criteria of Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008.
