Safety Data Sheet indicated Flash Point as 218°C, therefore Test 1 performed with start temperature of 195°C.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Closed Cup Flash Point Temperature : 194°C (No correction required)
Executive summary:

The test covers the determination of the closed cup, flash point temperature of a liquid chemical, in air, at atmospheric pressure. Dependent upon the nature of the test material, there are two procedures for testing.

The test is conducted in accordance with the procedure described in EU Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A test A.9.


Closed Cup Flash Point Temperature : 194°C (No correction required)
