Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, flash point of the test susbtance is determined to be 75°C at 100 ± 1 kPa.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flash point of the test substance, using closed cup method (Pensky-Martens apparatus), according to EU method A.9 in compliance with GLP. Under the study conditions, flash point of the test substance is determined to be 75°C at 100 ± 1 kPa (Chilworth, 2017).

Description of key information

The flash point of the test substance was determined experimentally using closedcup method, according to EU A.9 Method (Chilworth, 2017)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
75 °C
