977.8 hPa
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The mean flash point of (±)-menthone is determined to be 79.6 °C at 980.9 hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of test substance (±)-menthone (CAS No 1074 -95 -9) was done as per the test guideline OECD 103. The method is closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flashpoint of the test substance was determined to be 79.6°C at 980.9 hPa. Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the (±)-menthone (CAS No 1074 -95 -9) was considered to be non-flammable.

Additional information

Various studies for the(±)-menthone (CAS No 1074 -95 -9)were reviewed to summarize the following information:

 

The flash point determination of test substance (±)-menthone (CAS No 1074 -95 -9) was done as per the test guideline OECD 103. The method is closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flashpoint of the test substance was determined to be 79.6°C at 980.9 hPa. Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence (±)-menthone (CAS No 1074 -95 -9) was considered to be non-flammable.

The flash point available for (±)-menthone (CAS No 1074 -95 -9) from handbooks .From the available data the flashpoint of the test substance was determined to be 68.8889 °C.

 

As data available for flash point from laboratory and handbooks, the data from laboratory report has K1 reliability and the test was performed using OECD guidelines which have the value of flash point as79.6°C at 980.9 hPa thus considered as key study for the chemical safety assessment. Also based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence(±)-menthone (CAS No 1074 -95 -9) was considered to be non-flammable.
