Description of key information

A trend of increasing flash point with increasing carbon number is seen for category members.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
-25 °C

Additional information

Flash point increases with increasing carbon number across the category. Olefins have a slightly lower flash point than the alpha olefin with the same carbon number. Data is available for category members with carbon numbers of C6 to C28. The flash point of alpha olefins at carbon numbers C6 -C10 will result in a classification for flammability. The flash point of olefins at carbon numbers C6 -C12 will result in a classification for flammability.
