Atm. press.:
96.4 kPa
Remarks on result:
no flash point according to standard method

Preliminary test was performed from 80 to 200 °C with negative result.

The test material was measured in main tests with two parallel.

No flash point was observed during the main tests.

Interpretation of results:
other: Not classified according to EU criteria.
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the study no flash point was observed up to 200 °C.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test material was determined in accordance with standardised guidelines EU Method A.9 and ASTM 6450, under GLP conditions.

A MINIFLASH automatic flash point tester was used for the determination.

A preliminary test was performed from 80 to 200°C with negative result. The test material was measured in the main test with two parallel tests.

No flash point was observed during the main tests.

Under the conditions of the study no flash point was observed up to 200°C.

Description of key information
