Key result
Flash point:
28 °C
Atm. press.:
972.3 hPa
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The mean flash point of test chemical is 28°C at 972.3hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of test chemical was done following closed cup method using Abel’s flash pt apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was determined to be 28°C at 972.3hPa.

Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point <than 60 degree C hence the substance was considered to be classified in flammable category 3.

Description of key information

The flash point determination of test chemical was done following closed cup method using Abel’s flash pt apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was determined to be 28°C at 972.3hPa.

Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point <than 60 degree C hence the substance was considered to be classified in flammable category 3.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
28 °C

Additional information

As per the available data for flash point from reliable handbook and authoritative databases, the flash point value determined was in range from 24 degree C to 28 degree C. As the data from laboratory has K1 reliability and theflash point determination of test chemical was done following closed cup method using Abel’s flash pt apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was determined to be 28°C at 972.3hPathus it was considered as key study for the chemical safety assessment andbased on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point <than 60 degree C hence the substance was considered to be classified in flammable category 3.
