Materials and methods

Test guidelineopen allclose all
equivalent or similar to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
according to guideline
other: ASTM D7094: “Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Modified Continuously Closed Cup (MCCCFP) Tester”
Version / remarks:
not specified
Principles of method if other than guideline:
According to ECA.9 the flash point can be determined by an equilibrium method or a non-equilibrium method. Several methods are mentioned in the guideline. ASTM D7094 is not one of the methods mentioned in the guideline but is a commonly used and safer (low sample volume) alternative for the non-equilibrium ISO 2719 Pensky martens closed cup method.

Results and discussion

Flash point
Key result
Flash point:
101 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa

Any other information on results incl. tables

Test 2: 101°C

Test 3: 103°C

As the difference between the results is ≤ 6°C, the lowest flash point value obtained was reported as the flash point of the substance.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: not classified under CLP or GHS
The flash point of the substance was determined to be 101°C (at 1013 hPa).
Executive summary:

The flash point of the substance was determined using the modified continuously closed cup ASTM D7094 method (GLP study). The flash point was determined in duplicate obtaining a lowest value of 101°C (at 1013 hPa).
