Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
The flash point of test chemical was determined to be 109°C at 96630 Pa..
Executive summary:

The flash point of test chemical was determined. The study was performed following the closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flash point of the test chemical was determined to be 109°C at 96630 Pa.Thus, on the basis of criteria mentioned in CLP regulation, the chemical has flash point > 60°C hence the substance was considered to be not flammable.

Description of key information

Based on the available data from study report,the flash point of test chemical was determined. The study was performed following the closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flash point of the test chemical was determined to be 109°C at 96630 Pa.Thus, on the basis of criteria mentioned in CLP regulation, the chemical has flash point > 60°C hence the substance was considered to be non flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
109 °C

Additional information

Based on the available data from study report,the flash point of test chemical was determined. The study was performed following the closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flash point of the test chemical was determined to be 109°C at 96630 Pa.

In a supporting study from handbooks, the flash point of test chemical was determined to be >100°C.

Thus, on the basis of criteria mentioned in CLP regulation, the chemical has flash point > 60°C hence the substance was considered to be non flammable.
