Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

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.
