Description of key information

Flash point: 7°C (ASTM D-56, closed cup)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A closed cup flash point value of 7°C is reported in a study report according to an appropriate national standard method. A limit value of <79°C was determined in an open cup study. The former is selected as key study because closed cup studies are prefered and a precise value was determined.

The result given in secondary source gives a lower flash point of -9°C. Variations in flash point may be due to variations in purity or variations in the test conditions. There is not enough information about this study to establish the reliability of this result.

All values are consistent with the substance being highly flammable.
