Atmospheric pressure: 100.9 kPa (atmospheric pressure)

Corrected flash point: 84.1 ºC

Interpretation of results:
Category 4 (combustible liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item has been determined to be 84 ± 2 °C at 100.9 kPa (atmospheric pressure).
Executive summary:

The flash point was determined using EU Method A.9 closed cup equilibrium method. The lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 84 °C (corrected) at 100.9 kPa (atmospheric pressure).

The flash point of the test item was determined to be 84 ± 2 °C at 100.9 kPa (atmospheric pressure).

Description of key information

EU Method A.9, 2017 - The flash point was determined using EU Method A.9 closed cup equilibrium method. The lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 84 °C (corrected) at 100.9 kPa (atmospheric pressure).

The flash point of the test item was determined to be 84 ± 2 °C at 100.9 kPa (atmospheric pressure).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
84 °C

Additional information

Classification applicable for GHS (FL4 as flash point = >60 but < 93°C), but no classification relevant for EU CLP as flash point not ≤ 60 °C).
