Endpoint:
flash point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2012-12-01
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO No., other: ASTM D93: Standard test methods for Flash Point by Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Tester

236 °C
Atm. press.:
760 mm Hg
Conclusions:
The flash point of the substance is 236 deg. C at 760 mmHg
Executive summary:

The flash point of the substance is  236 deg. C at 760 mmHg as determined by the Pensky-Martens Closed cup (PMCC) Tester according to ASTM D93.

Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: analogue substance
Justification for type of information:
Determination of flash point is not required because available data indicate that structural variation does not influence test results or adverse effect profile (see read-across and category justifications attached in Section 13).
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
read-across source
Key result
Flash point:
224 °C
Atm. press.:
101.7 kPa
