Description of key information

The flash point determination of test item was done. The method is closed cup method using Pensky-Martens Flash Point Apparatus. The mean flash point of the test item was determine to be 102.6°C at 977.6 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
106.3 °C

Additional information

The flash point determination of test item was done. The method is closed cup method using Pensky-Martens Flash Point Apparatus. The mean flash point of the test item was determine to be 102.6°C at 977.6 hPa.

Based on the data from other supporting studies from various reliable sources such as handbooks, authoritative database and study reports, the flash point of test item was determined to be in the range of 91 to 106.5±19 °C. Thus, for the purpose of chemical safety assessment we will consider the key study value which is reported as 102.6°C at 977.6 hPa. This flash point value when converted at 101 325 Pa is equivalent to 106.3 °C.
