flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
1 (reliable without restriction)
according to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Specific details on test material used for the study:
An oil-rich hop extract, from hop variety 'Target' batch number BI/YYF/1701 was used. The essential oil content was 30.6% v/w. A high-oil extract was deliberately chosen since hop extract is a UVCB and it is the essential oils that are the only potentially flammable component. Therefore the flash point of a high-oil extract will provide a suitable flammability classification for all hop extracts.
Key result
Flash point:
ca. 81 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 101.1 kPa
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Hop extract is not classified as a flammable liquid.
