Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:

Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
178 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: closed cup method

The main test was performed in duplicate. For each test, test item was liquefied at about 80 °C. A clear flash point was observed at a test item temperature of 178 °C and 176 °C, respectively. The mean value was calculated to be 177 °C at the actual atmospheric pressure of 98.5 kPa.

The flash point of test substance was determined to be 178°C at 1013 hPa, closed cup
Executive summary:

In this guideline (ISO 2719) study conducted to GLP standards, the test material (EC 438-340-0) was determined to have a flash point of 178°C at 1013 hPa (closed cup).
