Specific details on test material used for the study:
-Commercial name: Amyl Salicylate
-Chemical nature: Mixture of Pentyl 2-hydroxybenzoate and 3-Methylbutyl 2-hydroxybenzoate
-Givaudan Code No: 8810001
- Physical state: Liquid
- Analytical purity: 98.8% (sum of two isomers)
- Lot/batch No.: VE00100713
- Expiration date: September 10, 2011
Flash point:
126 °C
Atm. press.:
101.325 kPa

The results of the main tests are:

First determination: Flash point, corrected for atmospheric pressure: 126.0°C

Second determination: Flash point, corrected for atmospheric pressure: 126.0°C

 

The exact results of the two tests were averaged and rounded off to the nearest 0.5°C to obtain the final flash point value of 126.0°C.  

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of Amyl Salicylate is 126.0°C
Executive summary:

The flash point of Amyl Salicylate was determined according to Method A.9 using the Pensky-Martens method. The result was 126.0°C.
