flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: guideline study
ISO No., other: DIN 51755
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Measurement according to Closed cup principle
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
40 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Result = 40°C at 1013 hPa
Executive summary:

The determination of the flash point was performed according to German Industry Standard DIN 51755 (Closed cup principle; BASF AG, 1992). As final result, the flash point amounts to 40°C at 1013 hPa.

Description of key information

Flash point: 40 °C. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
40 °C

Additional information

The key value is taken from an experimental result according to the closed-cup method (German Industry Standard DIN 51755) performed by BASF AG (1992). Supporting information by Hawley (1977) indicates a flash point for 2 -dimethylaminoethanol of 40.6 °C.
