Description of key information

The flash point was determined using a closed cup equilibrium method, designed to be compatible with Method A9 Flash Point ofCommissionRegulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
The flash point of the test item has been determined to be 127 ± 2°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
127 °C

Additional information

A reliability rating of 1 was assigned to the key study, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997 as the study was conducted in accordance with recognised guidelines and GLP.

Supporting studies included information taken from 3 MSDS's from Merck, Gelest and Atofina, flash points reported were 180 °C (open cup method), 94 °C (201°F) (closed cup method) and 248°F (120°C) respectively. There is very limited information on methods for these endpoints.

A reliability rating of 4 was assigned, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997 as these are secondary source information.
