Description of key information

The value of flash point has been determined in-company, following the test method ASTM D93 and confirmed in another laboratory. The obtained values are equal in both laboratories.

The flash point of the substance is well above the value leading to classification.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
133 °C
