Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From 22 December 2015 to 12 December 2016
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
2008
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: • ASTM International, ASTM D7094: “Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Modified Continuously Closed Cup (MCCCFP) Tester”, 2012.
Version / remarks:
2012
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Eraflash tester
Key result
Flash point:
< -20 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa

Ignition was observed directly at the start of both prelininary tests (at -20°C), no main study was performed.

Interpretation of results:
Category 1 (extremely flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item is determined to be lower than -20°C
As his boiling point is lower than 35°C, the test item is classified as flammable liquid category 1 based on GHS criteria.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item was determined with the closed cup method according to recognized gudielines (EU method A.9, ASTM D7094) and under GLP.

No deviations from the guidelines was observed during the test.

The flash point of the test item is <-20°C.

Based on this reult and the boiling point, the test item is classified as flammable liquid category 1 based on GHS criteria.

Description of key information

The flash point of the test item was determined with the closed cup method according to recognized gudielines (EU method A.9, ASTM D7094) and under GLP.

No deviations from the guidelines was observed during the test.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The flash point of the test item is <-20°C.
