Test material information:
Composition 1
Key result
Flash point:
107 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm
Conclusions:
The flash point of nopol was determined to be 107°C.
According to the criteria of Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) and Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP), the substance is not classified as flammable.
Executive summary:

The determination of the flash point was performed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, method A.9 “Flash Point” (May 2008) and the Standard Test Method ASTM D 3828-97.

The flash point was measured with a closed cup tester by an equilibrium method "Small Scale", commonly known as Setaflash where the vapours are deemed to be in temperature equilibrium with the liquid.

Two measurements were performed.

The flash point of nopol was determined to be 107°C.

Description of key information

The flash point was determined with a closed cup tester by Setaflash method.
The flash point of nopol is 107°C.
According to the criteria of Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) and Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP), nopol is not classified as flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
107 °C

Additional information

Key study conducted according to EU Method A.9 and ISO ASTM D3828 -97 Method. The result is scientifically acceptable but not obtained under GLP. Therefore a reliability of 2 (reliable with restrictions) is assigned.
