flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
The test procedure is validated periodically using Decane and n-Hexadecane.
A Pensky-Martens Closed cup automatic flash-point tester according to the most recent versions of ISO 2719 and ASTM D 93 was used. The study integrity was not adversely affected by the deviation
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Clear colourless liquid, purity 96.5%.
Key result
Flash point:
41.5 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Test 1 40.5 °C and test 2 40.5 °C. The measured flash point temperature was corrected for the atmospheric pressure. Standard: kPa: 101.3. The corrected flash point was rounded off to 0.5 °C.
Executive summary:

The measured flash point temperature was 41.5 oC.

Description of key information

The measured flash point temperature was 41.5 oC.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
41.5 °C
