Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
136 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa

Two measurements were conducted, both yielding flash points of 136 °C.

Conclusions:
The test substance has a flash point of 136 °C at standard atmospheric pressure.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was determined according to EU method A9 using a non-equilibrium method according to Pensky-Martens. The substance was heated in a closed cup (Miniflash FLPL, Grabner instruments) with a constant rate of 5.5 °C per minute. Ignition was started after every 1 °C step. The flash point is the lowest temperature, corrected for a barometric pressure of 1013 hPa, at which the application of an electric arc causes the vapour of the test substance to ignite under the specified conditions. The average flash point of the test substance at standard atmospheric pressure was determined in two experiments to be 136 °C.
