Other quality assurance:
other: DIN EN ISO 9001 : 2008
Type of method:
closed cup
Remarks:
MP EN22719A/ ISO2719A
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Dynamic viscosity of test material:
2.103 mPa s at 20°C
Test material information:
Composition 1
Key result
Flash point:
77 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa

Details on single measurements:

First measurement: 77.5 °C;

Second measurement: 76.5 °C;

Mean value: 77 °C

The correction to ambient pressure (1013 hPa) was accomplished automatically during measurements by the apparatus.

Interpretation of results:
Category 4 (combustible liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
Flash point = 77 °C at 1013 hPa
Executive summary:

The flash point for the submission substance was determined according to EU method A.9 using the Pensky-Martens closed cup method according to DIN EN ISO 2719 / ASTM D93-07. Two replicate measurements were performed, resulting in a mean flash point of 77 °C at 1013 hPa.

All study results reported here were obtained using valid test methods and calibrated instruments. Standard operation procedures comply with the company’s Quality Management System certified by Deloitte Cert Umweltgutachter GmbH (Registration Numbers Z1 056-0308 and Z1 057 -0308)
