Description of key information

Flash point: 51 to 86°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Several measured flash points are available. Those known to have been conducted according to international or national standard methods are considered reliable, even where no further information about the studies is available. The reliable values are in the range 51 to 86°C.

Variations in the flash point values may be caused by variations in purity of the test substance and in the test method used. In particular, the presence of volatile impurities such as methanol, can result in lower flash points. Individual companies will classify their substance according to the flash point data available specific to their substance.
