The lowest flash point corrected to 1013 hPa is rounded down with an accuracy of 0.5 °C: 89.5 °C.

Interpretation of results:
Category 4 (combustible liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item was determined to be 89.5°C at 1013 hPa.
Executive summary:

The study was performed in order to determine the flash point of test item according to EU A.9 guideline, using the equilibrium method.

The flash point of the test item was determined to be 89.5°C at 1013 hPa.

Test item is NOT classified as flammable liquid according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation) but it is classified as Flammable liquid category 4 according to UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

Description of key information

The flash point of test item was determined to be 89.5°C.

Test item is NOT classified as flammable liquid according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation) but it is classified as Flammable liquid category 4 according to UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
89.5 °C

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to EU A9 guideline is available.

It is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
