Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
13 March 2018
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:
no
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 3679 (Determination of flash point - Rapid equilibrium closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2004
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Rapid Tester NPV 310 from Normalab
Key result
Flash point:
95.5 °C
Atm. press.:
989.2 hPa

In the definitive test, the lowest temperature where ignition was seen was at 95.0 ⁰C. The mean measured flash point is corrected to the ambient pressure to be 95.6 ⁰C. The resulting average corrected flash point rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C is 95.5 °C.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item was determined to be 95.5°C at an atmospheric pressure of 989.2 hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point study was conducted in accordance to EU Method A.9 (Flash-point) and ISO 2719 guidelines using a closed cup method and is therefore considered reliable without restrictions. (Klimisch 1). In conclusion, the test item had a flashpoint of 95.5°C and is not required to be classified as flammable according to GHS or CLP 1272/2008 Annex 1: 2.6.
