Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: GLP compliant guideline study, available as unpublished report, no restrictions, fully adequate for assessment.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
closed cup
Key result
Remarks on result:
other: During the tests, it was observed visually that the test substance boils at 114.6 °C using the Pensky-Martens closed cup method. No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced in the test vessel at temperatures below boiling.
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced in the test vessel at temperatures below boiling, therefore; the test substance does not have a flash-point.
Executive summary:

Using the closed cup method, the test substance was heated from 20 °C to the visually observed boiling temperature of 114.6°C. Attempts to ignite the vapour of the test substance were made every 2°C of temperature rise. No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced in the test vessel at temperatures below boiling, therefore; the test substance does not have a flash-point.

Description of key information

Using the closed cup method, the test substance was heated from~ 20 °C to the visually observed boiling temperature of 114.6°C. Attempts to ignite the vapour of the test substance were made every 2°C of temperature rise. No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced in the test vessel at temperatures below boiling, therefore; the test substance does not have a flash-point.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
