Conclusions:
A flash point temperature of 64.5°C at 1013 hPa was determined for this substance in accordance with ISO 3679 and in compliance with a known quality system (ISO 9001:2008). The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

Description of key information

Flash point: 64.5±0.5°C at 1013 hPa (ISO 3679)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
64.5 °C

Additional information

A flash point of 64.5±0.5°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the submission substance using a rapid equilibrium closed-cup method in accordance with ISO 3679 and in compliance with a known quality system (ISO 9001:2008). The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

A measured boiling point of 197.1°C and a measured flash point of 64.5± 0.5°C indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
