Conclusions:
The test item has a flash point of 45.5 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C at standard pressure of 1013 hPa) according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9. Flash Point, DIN EN ISO 13736 (2013).
Executive summary:

In flash point study of the test item was determined according to GLP and Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9. Flash Point, DIN EN ISO 13736 (2013). This test apparatus uses a closed cup method, with the Abel apparatus.

In the preliminary test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 46.0 °C.

In the main test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 45.0 °C. The mean measured flash point is corrected to the ambient pressure to be 45.92 °C. The resulting average corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C is 45.5 °C.

The test item has a flash point of 45.5 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C).
