 Lowest ‘flash’ temperature 140 °C

- Run 2 (range-finding):

Highest ‘no-flash temperature’ 135 °C

 Lowest ‘flash’ temperature 137 °C

- Run 3 (definitive):

Highest ‘no-flash temperature’ 135 °C

 Lowest ‘flash’ temperature 136 °C

- Run 4 (definitive):

Highest ‘no-flash temperature’ 135 °C

 Lowest ‘flash’ temperature 136 °C

Mean flash point from two definitive runs: 136 °C

Atmospheric pressure 745.25 mm Hg = 99.358 kPa

Corrected flash point at 101.325 kPa : 136.5 °C

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test material was determined by a closed cup equilibrium method to be 136.5 °C at 101.325 kPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test material was determined by a closed cup equilibrium method in accordance with EU Method A.9. The flash point of the test material was determined to be 136.5 °C at 101.325 kPa.
