Description of key information

Flash point [Fatty alcohols C16 – C18 (even numbered), branched and linear]: 261°C (ISO 2719)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
261 °C

Additional information

A measured flash point of 261°C was determined for the substance in accordance with ISO 2719 but not in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and selected as key study. In a secondary source to which reliability could not be assigned, flash point of 180°C using open cup method was reported for the substance.

Flash point of 261°C and a measured boiling point of 343°C, indicate that the substance should not be classified as a flammable liquid according to the criteria of EC Regulation 1272/2008.
