The resulting average corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C is 148.0 °C

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Remarks:
EU criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item has been determined to be 148.0 °C at 1010.1 hPa atmospheric pressure.
Executive summary:

The flash point was determined using the EU Method A.9 and ISO 3679 closed cup equilibrium method under GLP. In the main test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 148.0 °C at 1010.1 hPa, which was then corrected to the standard pressure to be 148.1 °C. The resulting corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C is 148.0 °C at atmospheric pressure.
