Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1990-09-17 to 1990-10-30
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study without detailed documentation
Remarks:
The study followed an international standard, however no experimental details and no Certificate of Analysis of the test substance were provided.
Reason / purpose:
reference to same study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO No., other: JIS K 2265
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO No., other: ASTM D 1310-86
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Tag apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
30 °C
Remarks on result:
other: The atm. pressure was not reported in the reprt, and therefore is considered as ambiant pressure.

Atmospheric pressure was not specified (but supposed to be ambient).

Results measured with tag closed cap flash point measuring instrument:

First assay

30.0°C

Second assay

30.0°C

Mean value

30.0°C

The combustion point (i.e. temperature at which vapour continues to burn) was also measured according to ASTM D 1310-86.

Results measured with tag open cap flash point measuring instrument:

First assay

65°C

Second assay

67°C

Third assay

65°C

 Mean value  66°C
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of Trifluoroethanol is 30°C.
Executive summary:

The flash point of trifluoroethanol (purity not specified) was measured in closed cup according to JIS K 2265 standard, and in open cup (i.e. combustion point) according to ASTM D 1310-86 standard. Results were respectively 30.0 and 66°C.

Endpoint:

Key result
Flash point:
29 °C
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of Trifluoroethanol is 29°C.
Executive summary:

The german GESTIS database provides information on hazardous substances, including some physico-chemical properties; a Flash Point of 29°C is cited for the substance 2,2,2-Trifluoroethanol.

Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
not specified
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
secondary literature
Remarks:
Data comes from an online database, with only endpoint value (no experimental details), and therefore cannot be assigned as reliable.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
29.44 °C
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of Trifluoroethanol is 29.44°C.
Executive summary:

The HSNO database provides information on classification of chemicals; a Flash Point of 29.44°C is cited for the substance 2,2,2-Trifluoroethanol.

Description of key information

Experimental result: 30°C (Ohashi 1990)
Literature data: 29°C (Gestis database); 29.44°C (HSNO)
The substance Trifluoroethanol is classified as Flammable liquid (cat.3) according to Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP) criteria.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
29.5 °C

Additional information

An experimental study, relating to flash point measurement in closed cup, was provided and considered as reliable, as based on an international standard.

Two literature data, despite not assignable, were fully consistent. The endpoint key value will be the arithmetic mean of the three above values.
