other: A GLP study carried out to the relevant guidelines.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
151 °C

101.1 kPa

No further details provided.

Conclusions:
The flash point of hexyl salicylate was determined as 151°C.
Executive summary:

The sample was heated at a slow, constant rate (5 K.min-1) with continual stirring in a closed cup. A small flame was directed into the cup containing the sample, at regular intervals, with simultaneous interruption of stirring. The flash point was the lowest temperature at which the application of a flame resulted in an ignition of the vapour, above the sample. The test was conducted according to EC 440/2008 incorporating EC’s “Classification, Packaging & Labelling of Dangerous Substances in the European Union” Part 2, Testing methods, Jan ’97. Directive 92/69, Annex V to Council Directive 67/548/EC.

The flash point of hexyl salicylate was determined as 151°C.
