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:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ASTM D93 (Standard test methods for flash point by pensky-martens closed cup tester)
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
75 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 101 325 Pa
Remarks on result:
other: Atmospheric pressure was not reported; assumed to be approximately 101325 Pa.
Interpretation of results:
Category 4 (combustible liquids) based on GHS criteria
Remarks:
[European CLP does not include Category 4; therefore, OFPMA is not classified as a flammable liquid according to CLP (EU 1272/2008 as amended)]
Conclusions:
The flash point of OFPMA was determined according to the Pensky-Martens closed cup (PMCC) method of ASTM D93. The study was conducted in triplicate. The PMCC flash point of OFPMA is 75°C at standard atmospheric pressure.

Description of key information

The flash point of OFPMA was determined according to the Pensky-Martens closed cup (PMCC) method of ASTM D93. The study was conducted in triplicate. The PMCC flash point of OFPMA is 75°C at standard atmospheric pressure.

 

While a flash point of 75°C does meet the classification criteria of UN GHS (Version 6) for a Category 4 Flammable Liquid, the European classification system CLP (EU 1272/2008 as amended) does not include Category 4 for flammable liquids. Therefore, OFPMA is not classified as a flammable liquid according to CLP (EU 1272/2008 as amended).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
75 °C
