Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): EMCA
- Physical state: Colourless liquid
- Analytical purity: 99.3 %
Key result
Flash point:
78 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa
Remarks on result:
other: The value was corrected for the atmospheric pressure.

Preliminary results:

The estimated flash point of the test item was 80ºC.

Main test results:

The duplicate flash point results 104 ºC differed more than 2ºC and therefore, a third test was performed. The test subtance temperature was 14.5ºC at the start of test 3. Starting at 58ºC, the igniter was applied every 1ºC temperature rise. The obtained flash points in the three runs were 81, 78 and 79 ºC.

Conclusions:
The flash point of the test subtance was 78ºC in the Pensky-Martens closed cup method.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item was 78ºC in the Pensky-Martens closed cup method according to EU method A.9, ISO 2719 (2002), and ATSM D93 guidelines under GLP conditions.
