Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
At room temperature the test item was not flammable; therefore it was heated with a rate of 5°C/min until 200°C.
Four determination were performed on the test item with the Pensky-Martens closer tester.
It can be concluded that the sample produced flammable vapours which can be ignited and the flash point is 172°C (as the mean of the three tests performed). The test article does not meet the criteria to be classified as flammable.
