Remarks on result:
no flash point - measurement carried out until boiling temperature

Preliminary test

It was visually observed that the test item boiled at approximately 230°C. No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced at temperatures below the temperature at which boiling of the test item occurred. From this, it was concluded that the test item has no flash point.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The closed cup method was applied for the determination of the flash-point of Hetester HCA. No flash-point was observed below the temperature at which boiling of the test item occurred.
Executive summary:

In this guideline (EU A.9) study, conducted with GLP certification, no flash-point was observed below the temperature at which boiling of the test item occurred.

The test item did not meet the criteria for classification as a flammable liquid according to the Classification, Labelling, and Packaging (CLP) regulation (1272/2008).

Description of key information

Study conducted to recognised testing guidelines with GLP certification.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The closed cup method was applied for the determination of the flash-point ofHetester HCA.

No flash-point was observed below the temperature at which boiling of the test item occurred.
