Type of method:
closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
138 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa

The preliminary test estimated flash point of the substance was 142 °C.

The main study estimated flash point values were 140 °C and 138 °C in test 1 and test 2, respectively. The lowest value obtained was accepted as a final result.

The atmospheric pressure P during the experiment was 1016.5 hPa. The correction to be applied was 0.025*(1013-P); ca. -0.09 °C, thus neglected.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met

Description of key information

138 °C

Additional information

The flash point of the substance was determined using Pensky-Martens closed cup method, according to EU method A.9 and guidelines UN p. 32.4.1, ISO 2719 and ASTM D 93.
