Executive summary:

The flash point determination of test substance was performed by closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flashpoint of the test substance was determined to be 143.2°C at 967.2 hPa

Description of key information

The flashpoint of the test substance was determined to be 143.2°C at 967.2 hPa

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
143.2 °C

Additional information

The flash point determination of test substance was performed by closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flashpoint of the test substance was determined to be 143.2°C at 967.2 hPa

Thus, according to flash point value the chemical was not classified as flammable.
