Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to same study
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to other study
according to guideline
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
185 °C
Remarks on result:
other: pressure not reported

The flash point of 185 °C is the average from the measurement of the two Lots test material DBMC.

The flash point of DBMC is experimentally determined to be 185 °C.
Executive summary:

The flash point of DBMC is 185 °C determined experimentally with the Pensky-Martens Apparatus (closed cup method) as average value from two test batches from Chemtura company.

Description of key information

The flash point of DBMC was experimentally determined with the closed cup method to be 185 °C (Csaftari, 2010).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
185 °C

Additional information

The supporting study reports a flash point of 195 °C for DBMC (NITE, 2009).
