The lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 45.0 °C.

Main Test results:

The lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 44.0 °C. The measured flash point is corrected to the ambient pressure to be 44.535 °C. The resulting average corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C is 44.5 °C.

Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The test item has a flash point of 44.5 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C).
According to the results of the test on the flash point, the test item is classified as following:

GHS (CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 Annex 1: 2.6): With a measured flash point between >=21 °C and <= 55 °C, the test item has to be classified as flammable liquid of Category 3 and marked with the warning ‘H226: flammable liquid and vapour ’ according to GHS or CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 Annex 1.
UN Transport Regulation: With a measured flash point between >=21 °C and <= 55 °C, the test item has to be classified as flammable liquid in class 3 of packaging group III.


Executive summary:

The test item has a flash point of 44.5 °C (average corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C) according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9.Flash Point, and DIN EN ISO 13736 (2013) Abel Closed cup test.
