Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item has been determined to be 158 ± 2 °C.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item was determined to be 158 ± 2 °C, using a closed cup equilibrium method designed to be compatible with Method A.9 Flash Point of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Description of key information

The flash point of the test item was determined to be 158 ± 2 °C. The test item is therefore considered to be non-flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
158 °C

Additional information

The flash point of the test item was determined to be 158 ± 2 °C, using a closed cup equilibrium method designed to be compatible with Method A.9 Flash Point of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
