Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
study cannot be used for classification
Conclusions:
No flash point was observed between 25.0°C and 100.0°C using 2 ml of the substance.
No exploitation is possible over 100.0°C because the used quantities (4ml) cause the systematic extinction of the flame (release of steam). The apparatus considers this extinction as a flash and stops the measurement. In addition, this observation is not repeatable. The extinction temperature may vary depending on the initial temperature of the test and even from one test to another with the same operating conditions.

As no exploitation is possible with 4 ml and therefore over 100.0°C, the result of flash point is given as “> 100.0°C”.
