Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

flash point of flammable liquids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the flash point is only relevant to liquids and low melting point solids
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Study period:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods with acceptable restrictions
equivalent or similar to guideline
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
not specified
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Specific details on test material used for the study:
ColaTeric CDB (cetyl and lauryl betaine) as 35% active solution in water
Remarks on result:
no flash point - measurement carried out until boiling temperature
The substance boils away without flashing, and therefore is nonflammable.

Description of key information

This end point has been waived on the grounds that the substance is a solid even though it is normally supplied as an aqueous liquid.

An attempt was made to measure the flash point on the active substance in aqueous form using a Pensky Martin closed cup method but the liquid simply boiled off without flashing and thus confirmed as being non flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
