Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2016-12-21 – 2016-12-23
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The flash point of a flammable liquid is the lowest temperature at which there will be enough flammable vapor to ignite when an ignition source is applied.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
109.6 °C
Atm. press.:
977.9 hPa
Interpretation of results:
other: Not classified
Conclusions:
The mean flash point of test chemical is 109.6°C at 977.9hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of test chemical was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was found to be 109.6°C at 977.9hPa.

Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the test chemical was considered to be non-flammable.

Description of key information

The flash point determination of test chemical was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was found to be 109.6°C at 977.9hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
109.6 °C

Additional information

Flash Point:

From the various results, database were reviewed to summaries the following information:

The flash point determination of test chemical was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was found to be 109.6°C at 977.9hPa.

In a similar study, The flash point for test chemical was determined to be >200 degree C and from another study, the flash point for test chemical was determined to be >100 degree C.

 

As per the available data for flash point from laboratory report, authoritative databases and handbook, the flash point value determined was in range from >100 degree C to >200 degree C. As the data from lab has K1 reliability and the test was performed using OECD guidelines which has the value of flash point as 109.6 °C at977.9 hPa within the range thus considered as key study for the chemical safety assessment. Also based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the test chemical was considered to be non-flammable.
