Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
-30 °C

Additional information

Dornhagen (2010) is a GLP-compliant study following EC 440/2008 A.9 guidelines. The study is considered reliable and suitable for use as key study for this endpoint. A measured flashpoint of <-30°C at 101.3 kPa was reported in this study.

The key study is supported by a flashpoint value of -48.3 °C reported in the WHO IPCS International Chemical Safety Card (ICSC 0470 2004). No information on the primary source of the data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from an internationally peer-reviewed chemical safety card and can be considered reliable and suitable for use as supporting information for this endpoint.
