flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study without detailed documentation
according to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
according to guideline
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
57 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on EU-CLP criteria
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item was determined according to EU A9 guideline, closed cup method.

N,N-dimethyl-1-phenylmethanamine has a flash point of 57 °C, under normal atmospheric conditions (Currenta, 2010).

Description of key information

Benzyldimethylamine has an experimentally measured flash point of 57 °C (EU A9; Currenta, 2010).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
57 °C

Additional information

A guideline experimental study is available and therefore considered as key.

Literature data was discarded, as the open cup method is not relevant with regard to CLP criteria.
