Key result
Flash point:
150.5 °C
Atm. press.:
1 015.2 hPa

Results:

1. Preliminary test:

Amount of test item / g Temperature / °C Ignition (+/-) Air pressure / hPa
68.26 152.0 + 1014.8

In preliminary test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 152.0°C.

2. Main results:

Amount of test item / g Temperature / °C Ignition (+/-) Air pressure / hPa Flash point (corr.) / °C
67.42 150.0 + 1015.2 149.95
67.60 152.0 + 1015.2 151.95

In the main test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 150.0°C.

The mean measured flash point is corrected to the ambient pressure to be 150.95°C.

The resulting average corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5°C is 150.5°C.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test substance has a flash point of 150.5°C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5°C)
Executive summary:

The test has been performed according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9. Flash Point, DIN EN ISO 2719 (2003) without significant deviations.

The test substance has a flash point of 150.5°C measured at 1015.2 hPa (average and rounded down to nearest multiple of 0.5°C).

According to the results the test substance does not fulfil the GHS (CLP regulation 1272/2008) criteria to be classified as flammable liquid.

Description of key information

The test substance has a flash point of 150.5°C at 1013.25 hPa (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5°C)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
