flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
25 May - 27 May 2009
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
GLP guideline study
according to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
adopted in 2008
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Landesamt für Umwelt, Wasserwirtschaft und Gewerbeaufsicht, Mainz, Germany
Type of method:
equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Storage conditions: room temperature (20 ± 5 °C), keep away from light
Flash point:
> 100 °C
Remarks on result:
no flash point up to 100°C
Test item shows polymerisation at higher temperatures. Therefore, the study was stopped in order to not destroy the test system.

Two independent range-finding experiments were performed. In both, the test item flash point lies above 100.0 °C. Due to polymerization of the test item at higher temperatures, no further experiments were performed.

Description of key information

> 100 °C at 1013 hPa (EU Method A.9., Pensky-Martens closed cup)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The substance has a flash point above 100 °C.
Polymerisation of the substance occurs at higher temperatueres, therefore the test was stopped.
