Description of key information

Key study, reliability 1, conducted according to standardised guidelines (closed cup method) and GLP.
It gave a flash point value of 90°C at 1029 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Two other references (handbooks, reliability 2, selected as supporting studies) give a flash point at 132°Cin open cup tests.
