Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: GLP study carried out in compliance with an internationally recognised guideline
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
95 °C
Atm. press.:
999 mBar

The test cup was filled with the prescribed volume of test substance. The apparatus was then assembled in a fume cupboard. The test flame was lit and adjusted such that it was approximately 4 mm in diameter. The test substance was stirred continuously except during the application of the test flame. The test substance was heated, the test flame applied at one degree intervals and observations recorded.

The test was repeated using a fresh sample.

Conclusions:
The flash point of DMI was found to be 95°C

Description of key information

The flash point of DMI was found to be 95°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
95 °C

Additional information

A flash point determination was performed as part of a package of physicochemical testing (Huntingdon Life Sciences, 2013, Study LBM0053). The flashpoint was determined according to EU Method A9, and the study was conducted in compliance with GLP.

DMI was found to have a flash point of 95°C.

The flashpoint is greater than 60°C and therefore is not classified as a flammable liquid.
