Results and discussion

Flash point
Key result
Flash point:
> 70 °C
Remarks on result:
other: no flash point up to 70°C (above that temperature, the boiling of the water contained in the test item prevents the apparatus to continue measurements)

Any other information on results incl. tables

Several pre-tests were performed to estimate the flash point value.

During the first pre-test (from 25°C to 55°C), no flash was detected by the apparatus.

During the second pre-test (from 55°C to 85°C), no flash was detected by the apparatus.

During the third pre-test (from 70°C to 100°C), flash was detected by the apparatus during the first dipping of the ignitor into the test cup (70°C). However no flash was observed by the technician.

Three other pre-tests were performed anew between 70° and 100°C. Flash was detected at 70°C for two of them and at 85°C for one of them. For each pre-test, no flash was observed by the technician.

During the pre-tests, a significant evaporation and a beginning of ebullition at 90°C were noticed.

Furthermore the flash point of the reference substances butanol and CRM respects the checking cards limits.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
According to the various pre-tests that were performed, no flash was observed up to 70°C. Above that temperature, the boiling of the water contained in the test item prevents the apparatus to continue measurements. Therefore the flash point temperature is given as “>70°C”.
