Any other information on results incl. tables

Preliminary test

The estimated flash-point of the test item was 26°C.

Main test

The results of the main study are shown below. The difference between the results obtained with the 2 tests was =<2°C. From this it was concuded that the flash-point of the test item is the lowest flash-point obtained.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (highly flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The closed cup method was applied for the determination of the flash-point of JNJ-17337073-AAA (T001598).

The flash-point of the test item was 23°C based on the Pensky-Martens closed cup method.

Since the flash-point of the test item was in the range 23°C ± 2°C the equilibrium method was used. The flash-point of the test item obtained with the equilibrium method was 20°C.
