Results

Pre-test

The corrected flash point of the test item was estimated at 161.0°C during the pre-test.

First determination

The flash point of the test item was estimated at 158.0°C during the first determination.

An automatic correction was applied to the obtained result because the ambient pressure was not 101.3 kPa but 97.2 kPa.

With this correction, the flash point value was 159.0°C at 101.3 kPa.

Second determination

The flash point was detected at 158.0°C andthe same automatic correction was applied because the ambient pressure was 97.1 kPa.

With this correction, the flash point value was 159.0°C at 101.3 kPa.

Control of the performance of the method

-         A flash point of 193.0°C was registered for the reference substance glycerol (Batch N° 16H084105)

-         A flash point of 75.0°C was registered for theCertified Reference Material(Batch N° 1141209)

Conclusion

The corrected flash point of the test item was determined to be 159.0 °C at 101.3 kPa (lowest value of two independent determinations).

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The corrected flash point of the test item was determined to be 159.0 °C at 101.3 kPa (lowest value of two independent determinations).
Executive summary:

The study was performed in order to determine the flash point of test item according to EU A.9 guideline, using an equilibrium method with closed cup.

The corrected flash point of the test item was determined to be 159°C at 101.3 kPa.

The test item is NOT classified as flammable liquid according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation) and UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

Description of key information

The corrected flash point of the test item was determined to be 159°C at 101.3 kPa.

The test item is NOT classified as flammable liquidaccording to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation) and UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
159 °C

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to EU A9 guideline is available.

It is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
