Interpretation of results:
Category 4 (combustible liquids) based on GHS criteria
Remarks:
Not classified based on EU-CLP criteria
Conclusions:
The substance is NOT classified as a flammable liquid according to CLP criteria (FP>60°C).
GHS Flam.Liq.4 (FP< 93°C).
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was determined (non-GLP) according to ASTM D6450 (compatible with EU A.9 guideline), using a closed cup equilibrium method.

Triplicate determinations were conducted. For safety reason, the lowest value was retained.

The flash point of the test substance has been determined to be 84°C.

Description of key information

The substance is NOT classified as flammable liquid according to Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP) criteria.

The substance is classified as FLAMMABLE LIQUID category 4 according to UN GHS criteria.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
84 °C

Additional information

A reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized EU/ASTM method, is available. Despite restrictions as non-GLP, it is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
