The flash point is given as the mean value of the duplicate determination. The measured flash point is therefore 46.5°C (corresponding to 319.7 K).

Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The measured flash point is therefore 46.5 °C (corresponding to 319.7 K).
The test item should be classified as Flammable Liq. Cat 3 according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation).
Executive summary:

The study was performed in order to determine the flash point of test item according to EU A.9 guideline, using the equilibrium method.

The flash point of test item was determined to be 46.5°C (corresponding to 319.7 K).

The test item should be classified as Flammable Liq. Cat 3 according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation).

Description of key information

The flash point of the test item was stated as 46.5 °C (corresponding to 319.7 K).

This value is the mean value of two independent determinations.

The substance is CLASSIFIED as FLAMMABLE LIQUID Category 3 according to UN GHS criteria and Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP) criteria.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
46.5 °C

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to EU A9 guideline is available.

It is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
