Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Reason / purpose:
reference to other study
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
2008
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: ASTM D7094: “Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Modified Continuously Closed Cup (MCCCFP) Tester”
Version / remarks:
2012
Deviations:
not specified
Principles of method if other than guideline:
According to ECA.9 the flash point can be determined by an equilibrium method or a non-equilibrium method. Several methods are mentioned in the guideline. ASTM D7094 is not one of the methods mentioned in the guideline but is a commonly used and safer (low sample volume) alternative for the non-equilibrium ISO 2719 Pensky martens closed cup method.
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of method:
other: modified continuously closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Eraflash (Eralytics, Austria)
Dynamic viscosity of test material:
No data available.
Specific details on test material used for the study:
No boiling temperature before decomposition.
Decomp. temp.: ca 200°C.
Key result
Flash point:
ca. 175 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: Estimated value obtained from the preliminary test. Reaction/decomposition was observed at the same temperature.

It was visually observed (test item polymerized-solidified in the instrument) that the test item reacted

and/or degraded at approximately 175°C.

Interpretation of results:
other: Not classified under CLP or GHS.
Conclusions:
The flash point of the substance was estimated to be 175°C (at 1013 hPa).
Executive summary:

The flash point of the substance was determined using the modified continuously closed cup ASTM D7094 method (GLP study). Reaction and/or degradation of the test item (i.e. 175°C) occurred after measurement of the flash point. Test item polymerized in the instrument. To prevent damage to the flashpoint tester, the main test was not performed. From the preliminary test the flash point of the substance was estimated to be 175°C (at 1013 hPa).

Description of key information
