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
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
138.5 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013.3 hPa
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item was determined to be 138.5°C under atmospheric conditions (1013.3 hPa).
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item was determined according to European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008,

A.9. Flash point: Pensky-Martens (DIN EN ISO 2719).

The test item was placed in a stirred test vessel which was progressively heated (8.5 K/min for the preliminary test and 5.5 K/min for the main test) until the vapour reaches a sufficiently high concentration in air to produce a flammable mixture which could be ignited. A defined gas flame was used as ignition source. The flame was periodically dipped into the gas atmosphere of the test vessel (every 1 K).

The flash point of the test item was determined to be 138.5°C under atmospheric conditions (1013.3 hPa).
