flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
30 May 2008
according to guideline
ISO 13736 (Petroleum products and other liquids - Determination of flash point - Abel closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Abel apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
< -30 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa

The flash point of the test item was determined according to EU test method A.9 [Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, Official Journal L 142/1 2008] with the Abel method (closed cup).


Flash point: < -30°C (1013 hPa)


The flash point is lower than the lower limit of the test apparatus (-30°C).

Interpretation of results:
Category 1 (extremely flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
A flash point value of <-30°C at 1013 hPa was determined in a reliable study conducted according to an appropriate test protocol, and in compliance with GLP.

Description of key information

Flash point: <-30°C at 1013 hPa (ISO 13637)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
-30 °C

Additional information

A flash point value of <-30°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the submission substance using an Abel closed cup method in accordance with ISO 13637 Test Method and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

In available secondary sources to which reliability could not be assigned, flash point values of -30°C at 1013 hPa and -20°C at 1013 hPa were reported for the substance.

A flash point of <-30°C at 1013 hPa and a boiling point of 27°C at 1013 hPa, indicate that the substance should be classified for flammability (Cat 1) in accordance with the criteria of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
