according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
30 May 2008
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2003

Key result
Flash point:
89.5 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa

Because the difference between the two main test measurements was <=2.6 (mean value x 0.029), a second main test was not necessary.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point of 89.5°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance in a reliable study conducted according to an appropriate test protocol, and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable.

Description of key information

Flash point: 89.5°C at 1013 hPa (ISO 2719)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
89.5 °C

Additional information

A measured flash point value of 89.5°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a closed-cup method in accordance with ISO 2719 Test Method and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable.

In a secondary source to which reliability could not be assigned, a flash point value of approximately 105°C was reported for the substance.

A measured flash point value of 89.5°C at 1013 hPa and a measured boiling point of 236°C at 1013 hPa indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
