Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
March 08, 2016 to April 28, 2016
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
ISO 2719:2002
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Name (as stated in the report): Silvial
Batch No.: SC00016538
Expiration date: October 02, 2016
Key result
Flash point:
70 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa

The results of the main tests are:

First determination:          Flash point, corrected for atmospheric pressure: 70.0°C

Second determination:     Flash point, corrected for atmospheric pressure: 70.0°C

The results of the two tests were averaged and rounded off to the nearest 0.5°C to obtain the final flash point value: Flash point Silvial: 70.0°C.

Interpretation of results:
Category 4 (combustible liquids) based on GHS criteria
Remarks:
GHS UN criteria
Conclusions:
The results of the two tests were averaged and rounded off to the nearest 0.5°C to obtain the final flash point value: Flash point Silvial: 70.0°C

Therefore according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Annex I, section 2.6, "Flammable liquid means a liquid having a flash point of not more than 60 °C". The flash point of 70°C, is in the range above 60°C, the substance should not be classified flammable according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.
Executive summary:

The flash point of Silvial was determined by the Pensky-Martens method according to ISO 2719. The result is: 70.0°C

Therefore according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Annex I, section 2.6, "Flammable liquid means a liquid having a flash point of not more than 60 °C". The flash point of 70°C, is in the range above 60°C, the substance should not be classified flammable according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.

Description of key information
