Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The typical flash point for other lubricant base oils is >98°C. A flash point range of 98°C to 344°C was reported by CONCAWE (2010a). The flash point was determined using the EN ISO 2719, D93 guidelines. Reported values for flash points range from >115 up to 268°C following ASTM D93 open cup guidelines (CONCAWE, 1997).
