In the main test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 86.0 °C.

The mean measured flash point is corrected to the ambient pressure to be 86.19 °C.

The resulting average corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C is 86.0 °C.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item has a flash point of 86 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C).
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was determined according to EU Method A.9 by a non-equilibrium method according to Pensky-Martens. About 71 g - 73 g of the test item were filled in the test cup and heated with a heating rate of 5 -6 K/min. The flame is dipped in the cup at 1 K intervals. In the main test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 86.0 °C. The mean measured flash point is corrected to the ambient pressure to be 86.19 °C. The resulting average corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C is 86.0 °C.

Description of key information

The test item has a flash point of 86 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
86 °C

Additional information

The valid study on the flash point of the substance was conducted according to EU Method A.9 by using the non-equilibrium closed cup method according to Pensky-Martens. A flash point of 86 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C) was determined for the test substance.
