Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2011-08-22
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002
Deviations:
no
Principles of method if other than guideline:
This method describes the procedure for the determination of the flash point in a closed cup according to ASTM D6450 Standard (Standard Test Method for Flash-Point by Continuously Closed Cup (CCCFP)) in correlation to Pensky-Martens method of inflammable substances. The sample is heated in a cup with a constant, defined rate. The flash point is the lowest temperature, corrected to a barometric pressure of 101.3 kPa, at which application of an electric arc causes the vapour of a test portion to ignite under specified conditions.
GLP compliance:
no
Remarks:
The study was conducted under supervision of a quality assurance unit which had ensured e.g instrumentation validation, reagent/materials certification, analyst certification and providing standard operating procedures.
Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Flash point apparatus not further specified
Key result
Flash point:
98 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test substance was determined to be 98 °C at 1013 hPa.
Executive summary:

A study using the non-equilibrium closed cup method (according to EU A.9 and ISO 2719) was conducted to establish the flash point of the test substance. A sample (1 mL) was heated up by the apparatus with a rate of 5.5 °C per minute and the ignition was started after every 1 °C step. The flash point of the test substance was determined to be 98 °C at 1013 hPa.

Description of key information

The flash point of the test substance was determined to be 98 °C at 1013 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
98 °C
