Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Flash point:
77.5 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: mean value

In the first, the second and third main tests, ignitions were determined at 76°C, 79°C and 77°C, respectively

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point of 77.5 °C was determined at 1013 hPa.
Executive summary:

The tests were performed as stipulated in the German standard method "DIN EN 22719" which is equivalent or similar to EC Test Procedure A 9. A gas flame was used as the ignition source. Ignitions were visually determined by the tester. In the first, the second and third main tests, ignitions were determined at 76 °C, 79 °C and 77 °C, respectively. The mean value is 77 °C. The barometric pressure was 1013 hPa at the time of the test runs. Corrections with respect to the barometric pressure resulted in a final value of 77.5°C. Therefore the substance can be classified as a non-flammable liquid in the sense of the CLP-Guideline.

Description of key information

A flash point of 77.5 °C (mean value) was determined at 1013 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
77.5 °C

Additional information

The substance can be classified as a non-flammable liquid in the sense of the CLP-Guideline.
