Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
data from handbook or collection of data
Justification for type of information:
Data on flash point is obtained from publicly available data reported to the Environmental Risk Management Authority (ERMA) of New Zealand as presented on the e-Chem Portal web resource. Its acceptance by an authoritative body such as ERMA suffices to demonstrate its reliability.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 1523 (Determination of flash point - Closed cup equilibrium method)
Version / remarks:
2002. Remark: as stated in HSNO CCID
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
36.11 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa
Remarks on result:
other: assume standard atmospheric pressure
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of 3-methylpyridine was reported to ERMA of New Zealand to be 36.11°C. This data is made available on the e-Chem Portal, and its acceptance by an authoritative body such as ERMA suffices to demonstrate its reliability. The flash point falls in the range of greater than 23°C and less than 60°C, which is classified as Category 3 according to Regulation EC No. 1272/2008.
