Atmospheric pressure = 101.77 kPa

Corrected flash point 186.898 deg C

The corrected flash point was calculated using the following equation:

Corrected flash point (deg C) = C + 0.23 (101.325 -P)

Where:

C = Measured flash point (deg C)

P = atmospheric pressure (kPa)

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The flash point of ALKANE 2 has been determined to be 187 +/- 2 deg C.
Executive summary:

The experimental procedure used complied with that specified in Method A9 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

The flash point of ALKANE 2 has been determined to be 187 +/- 2 deg C.
