Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From May 23, 2017 to May 24, 2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
only (5)21 N04005.03 was used
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
see 'Principles of method if other than guideline'
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The Pensky-Martens apparatus can't be used, because the appearance of the test substance prevents the continuous stirring. Therefore from the mentioned test methods in A.9 only the test procedure (5)21 N04005.03 was used. In difference to the test method (5)21 N04005.03 the flash point determination was carried out by taking 2 resp. 4 g of the test substance instead of 2 resp. 4 mL.
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of method:
other: (5)21 N04005.03
Flash point apparatus:
Setaflash apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
98 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 mBar

The test substance is a white solid at room temperature.

Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, the test substance shows a flash point at a temperature of 98.0 °C (1013 mbar).
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flash point of the test substance according to EU Method A.9. The Pensky-Martens apparatus could not be used, because the appearance of the test substance prevents the continuous stirring. Only the test procedure (5)21 N04005.03 was used. In difference to the guideline the flash point determination was carried out by taking 2 resp. 4 g of the test substance instead of 2 resp. 4 mL. Examined temperature range was of -30 °C - 300 °C by Seta flash 7 as rapid tester. Under the study conditions, the test substance shows a flash point at a temperature of 98.0 °C (1013 mbar) (Kintrup, 2017).

Description of key information

The flash point was determined according to EU Method A.9 (Kintrup, 2017).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
98 °C
