Key result
Remarks on result:
no flash point - measurement carried out until boiling temperature
Remarks:
It was visually observed that the testmaterial has a boiling temperature of approximately 196 °C. No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced at temperatures below the boiling temperature of the test material.
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of this study, no flash point was observed below the boiling temperature of the test material.
Executive summary:

The test was performed in accordance with the standardised guidelines EU Method A.9 and ISO 2719, under GLP conditions.

The boiling temperature of the test material was visually observed to be approximately 196 °C. No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced at temperatures below the boiling temperature of the test material.

Under the conditions of this study, no flash point was observed below the boiling temperature of the test material.

Description of key information

The boiling temperature of the test material was visually observed to be approximately 196 °C. No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced at temperatures below the boiling temperature of the test substance. From this, it was concluded that the substance has no flash point.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
