Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From 29 June 2017 to 23 October 2017
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:
yes
Remarks:
The empty part (gaseous phase of the test item) of the flask exceeded 15% of its total capacity. This deviation was not considered to have affected the quality or the interpretation of the results obtained.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 3679 (Determination of flash point - Rapid equilibrium closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
March 2015
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
The empty part (gaseous phase of the test item) of the flask exceeded 15% of its total capacity. This deviation was not considered to have affected the quality or the interpretation of the results obtained.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Normalab NPV 310
Key result
Flash point:
134 °C
Atm. press.:
98.3 kPa

In the preliminary test, the flash point was observed between 130°C and 135C°. Between 50°C up to 130°C, no flash point was observed.

The main test was performed between 130°C and 134°C. The flash point was observed 134°C.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item is 134°C at 98.3 kPa
So according to GHS and CLP criteria, the test item is not classified as flammable liquid.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item was determined with the equilibrium method according to recognised guidelines and under GLP. A deviation, which didn't influence the quality of the test or the results, was observed in the study.

Before testing, the apparatus was checked with references substances. Based on the results obtained, the apparatus was considered reliable for flash point determinations.

The flash point of the test item at 101.3kPa is 134°C. So according to GHS and CLP criteria, the test item is not classified as flammable liquid.

Description of key information

The flash point of the test item was determined in a key study of Klimisch validity one, performed according to recognised guideline and under GLP.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
134 °C
