Measurement

(repeat determination)

Temperature of Initial Ignition Source Application:130.0°C / 130.0°C

Atmospheric Pressure:101.7 kPa / 101.4 kPa

Flash Point (Uncorrected):154.4°C / 154.4°C

Flash Point (Corrected):154.5°C / 154.5°C

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point of 155 °C at atmospheric pressure was determined for the substance using a relevant test method. The result is considered to be reliable.
Executive summary:

Tetradecanol was determined according ASTM D93. The flash point was determined to be 155 °C at atmospheric pressure.

Description of key information

The flash point of tetradecan-1-ol is 155°C at 1013 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
155 °C

Additional information

A flash point value of 155°C at 1013 hPa was determined for tetradecan-1-ol with the use of non-equilibrium closed-cup method in accordance with ASTM-D93. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

A flash point value of 155°C and boiling point of 294°C indicate that tetradecan-1-ol should not be classified for flammability in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

The flash point of Category substances follow a predictable trend of increasing flash point temperature with increasing chain length together with increasing boiling point and decreasing vapour pressure.
