Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Novec 7700 has no flash point up to 111 °C according to EU Method A.9.
Executive summary:

The flash point of Novec 7700 was tested using a closed-cup method. Starting at 25 °C, an attempt was made to ignite the vapour of the test substance for every 2 °C temperature rise. No flash was observed below 111 °C, at which temperature the test item showed significant evaporation. The study was conducted in accordance with EU Method A.9 and was GLP compliant; therefore the study is considered reliable without restrictions.
