Interpretation of results:
other: flammable liquid cat. 3 (CLP Regulation EC no. 1272/2008)
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item was determined to be 40 ± 0.0ºC.
Executive summary:

In accordance with GLP study and EU A.9 method, the determination of flash point was carried out. The flash point of reaction mass (fenchene, laevo alpha pinene, laevo camphene, dextro camphene) was determined by the Pensky Martens Closed Tester Method. Three measurements were performed. There was blue flame observed at 40ºC for the three replications. Hence, the mean flash point of the test substance was found to be 40 ± 0.0ºC at normal atmospheric pressure (i.e. 760 mm Hg).

Description of key information

Key study: GLP study and EU A.9 method. The flash point of the test item is 40 ± 0.0ºC.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
