134.28 °C
Atm. press.:
1 001.8 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: mean of 2 replicates, details in 'Any other information'

Preliminary test results:

amount of test item (g) temperature (°C) ignition air pressure (hPa)
67.7 132 + 1003.8

Main test:

amount of test item (g) temperature (°C) ignition air pressure (hPa) flash point (corr.) °C
65.25 134 + 1001.9 134.28
65.38 134 + 1001.7 134.28
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item has a flash point of 134 °C at atmospheric pressure 1001.8 hPa. The test item is hence not a flammable liquid.
Executive summary:

The flash point was determined according to EU Method A.9 using a the Pensky Martens apparatus. In a pre-test a flash point of ca. 132 °C was measured. This was further refined in the main test, using 2 replicates. The test item was found to have a flash point of 134.28°C.

Description of key information
