Administrative data

Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2002
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Reliability is rated 2 because flash point was determined using the ASTM D-93 method and was not carried out under GLP. The ASTM method is used commonly used in the US lubricant industry and is considered scientifically sound and acceptable. The ASTM method is similar or equivalent to the ISO 2719 Pensky-Martens closed cup method.

Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002
Principles of method if other than guideline:
In a Pensky-Martens closed cup apparatus, a brass test cup of specified dimensions, filled to the inside mark with test sample and fitted with a cover of specified dimensions, is heated and the sample stirred at specified rates, by either of two defined procedures. An ignition source is directed into the test cup at regular intervals with simultaneous interruption of the stirring, until a flash is detected. The temperature at which application of an ignition source causes the vapors of the sample to ignite will be reported as the flash point (corrected to barometric pressure of 101 kPa or 760 mm Hg).
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
