Key result
Flash point:
71 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013.25 hPa

For the determination of the initial temperature of flash point measurement a screen test was performed with the test item. The sample was heated from 30 °C to 200 °C using 5.5 °C/min heating rate. Based on this preliminary test the flash point of test item was determined to be: 70.4 °C.

In the course of the study three subsequent tests with the test item were carried out. The measured flash points of test item were:

70.4°C, 70.4 °C and 71.4 °C resulting a mean value: 71 °C at 1013.25 hPa.

The repeatability criterion was met because the maximum difference between replicate determinations was not more than 2°C.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Flash point of the test item was determined to be 71 °C at 1013.25 hPa.
Executive summary:

The purpose of the study was to determine the flash point of test item using Pensky-Martens Closed Cup method. The flash point of the test item was determined to be 71 °C at 1013.25 hPa.

Description of key information
