Main Test results:

In the main test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 27.0 °C.

The average measured flash point is corrected to the ambient pressure to be 28.365 °C.

The resulting average corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C is 28.0 °C.

Remarks:
CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008, Annex 1: 2.6
Conclusions:
The test item has a flash point of 28.0 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5°C).
Executive summary:

The test item has a flash point of 28.0 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5°C) according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9. Flash Point and DIN EN 13736 (2013). AbelClosed cup test.

According to the results of the test on the flash point, the test item is classified as following:

GHS (CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 Annex 1: 2.6): With a measured flash point of 28.0°C (<= 23 ° and <=60°C), the test item has to be classified as flammable liquid of category 3 and marked with the warning ‘H226: flammable liquid and vapour ’ according to GHS or CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 Annex 1.

UN Transport Regulation: the test item has to be classified as flammable liquid of packaging group III.
