Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Results and discussion

Flash point
Key result
Flash point:
187.17 °C
Atm. press.:
100.6 kPa
Remarks on result:
no flash point up to 100°C

Any other information on results incl. tables

The flash point is the lowest temperature at 101.3 kPa, at which the test liquid in a closed test vessel evolves vapor, under the conditions defined in the test method, in such amount that a flammable vapor / air mixture was produced in the test vessel.

The flash point was corrected for the atmospheric pressure using the following equation:

Equation 1 Corrected flash point = C + 0.23 (101.325 - p)

where: C = observed flash point [°C]

p = ambient atmospheric pressure [kPa].

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
The flash point of the test item has been determined to be 187 ± 2 °C, which does not meet the criteria for flash point hazardous properies.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item has been determined to be 187 ± 2 °C, using a closed cup equilibrium method designed to be compatible with Method A.9 Flash Point of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
