Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods with acceptable restrictions
according to guideline
ISO No., other: Setaflash Closed-Cup Flash Point Test following ASTM D 3828-87
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Setaflash apparatus
Flash point:
82.7 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa

FP = 355.85K (converted to 82.7 °C)

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
A flash point value of 82.7°C was determined in a reliable study conducted according to an appropriate test protocol. It was not conducted under GLP.

Description of key information

Flash point: 82.7°C at 101.3 kPa (ASTM D 3828-87)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
82.7 °C

Additional information

Two reliable flash point values are available; a closed cup flash point of 82.7°C (DCC 1999) and an open cup flash point of 85°C (Chilworth 2004). The former value is selected as key because the value is lower, and a closed cup method was used.

A secondary source to which reliability could not be assigned indicates a slightly lower flash point of 77°C. All values are consistent with the substance not being classified for flammability.
