Batch No.: 0000056625; Purity: 98/99 %
Key result
Flash point:
118 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013.25 hPa

The test substance 98/99 % has a flash point of 118.0 °C according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9. Flash Point and DIN EN ISO 2719 (2003).

According to the results of the test on the flash point, the test substance is classified as following:

UN Transport Regulation: As the test substance has a measured flash point of 118.0 °C, it has not to be classified in class 3 as flammable liquid.

GHS (CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 Annex 1: 2.6): As the test substance has a measured flash point of 118.0 °C, it has not to be classified as flammable liquid.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Under the study conditions the flash point of the test substance was estimated at 118 °C at 1013 hPa.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flash point of the test substance according to EU Method A.9 and ISO 2719. Under the study conditions the flash point of the test substance was estimated at 118 °C at 1013 hPa (Möller, 2017).

Description of key information
