Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
23 January - 20 October, 2015
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
The study was conducted according to an internationally recognised method, and under GLP. No deviation was reported. Test substance is adequately specified with purity. Therefore full validation applies.
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
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Not applicable
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Remarks:
UK GLP compliance programme (inspected on 05 February 2014 / signed on 07 October 2015)
Type of method:
closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
114 °C
Atm. press.:
1 026 mBar

The barometric pressure at the time of testing was 1026 mbar and, thus, no pressure correction was required (difference less than accuracy).

The duplicate determined flash points of test substance were 114 °C and 114 °C.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Remarks:
GHS and EU-CLP criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of test substance is above the classification thresholds of 60°C (CLP criteria) or 93°C (GHS criteria). Therefore the test substance is NOT classified as a flammable liquid.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was determined under GLP according to ISO 2719 (listed in EU A.9 guideline) using Pensky-Martens closed cup flash point apparatus.

The barometric pressure at the time of testing was 1026 mbar and, thus, no pressure correction was required (difference less than accuracy).

The duplicate determined flash points of test substance were 114 °C and 114 °C.

 

The flash point of test substance has been determined to be 114 °C.

Description of key information

The substance is NOT classified as flammable liquid neither according to CLP Regulation criteria, nor to UN GHS. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
114 °C

Additional information

A fully reliable GLP experimental study, conducted according to a recognized EU/ISO method (closed cup), is available. It is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.

 

This study is relevant for the classification regarding flammable properties.
