Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point value of 87°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a relevant test method. The result is considered to be reliable.

Description of key information

Flash point: 87°C at 1013 hPa (ISO 3679)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
87 °C

Additional information

A measured flash point of 87°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the submission substance using a rapid equilibrium method in accordance with ISO 3679 Test Method and in compliance with a known quality system (ISO 9001:2008). The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

In available secondary sources to which reliability could not be assigned, flash point values of 82°C and 90°C at 1013 hPa were reported for the substance.

A flash point of 87°C and a measured boiling point of 198.4°C, indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability according to the criteria of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
