Key result
Remarks on result:
no flash point - measurement carried out until boiling temperature
Remarks:
Heating was performed up to 199. °C. At this temperature, boiling was observed and the experiment was stopped.

Safety test 1

The test item appearance did not changed after cooling down. The piece of brass was copper coloured.

Safety test 2

Formation of bubbles was observed at 230 °C with no signs for decomposition or polymerisation.

Pre-Test

In the pre-test, no flash point was detected. Heating was performed up to 199 °C. At this temperature, boiling was observed and the experiment was stopped. After cooling down the test item appeared yellow-green.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No flash point was found for the test item up to the boiling temperature.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.9, OPPTS 830.6315 and UN Test Method 32.4 to determine flash point of the test item using a non-equilibrium closed cup method. Two safety test with approx. 3 mL test item were performed. The test item's appearance didn't change. A pre-test with 70 mL test item was performed using Pensky-Martens apparatus. The test item was heated up to 199 °C. At this temperature, boiling was observed and the experiment was stopped.

No flash point could be determined up to the boiling point of the test item.

Description of key information

No flash point up to the boiling point was observed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
