other: Followed acceptable guideline and GLP requirements
Reference:
Composition 1
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO 3679 (Determination of flash point - Rapid equilibrium closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2004
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: ASTM D-3728-89
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Type of method:
equilibrium method closed cup
Test material information:
Composition 1
Flash point:
> 145 - < 147 °C
Atm. press.:
101.325 kPa
Remarks on result:
other: The flash point temperature was corrected to a pressure of 101.325 kPa using the equation FP = C +0.23 (101.325 -B) where FP was the corrected flash point, C was the observed flash point, and B was the ambient atmospheric pressure in kPa
