Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The applied method following Pensky-Martens is normally used for flash points above 40°C only. But with external cooling of the test item in the test vessel to 5°C, the instrument was able to measure down to 5°C. Temperatures below 5°C could not be tested because of the properties of the test item: The high viscosity prevented the stirrer from diving into the test item and the measurement could not be started. The method following Abel-Pensky was not applicable as stirring was not possible due to the high viscosity of the test item.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)

Results and discussion

Flash point
Flash point:
> 5.5 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The flash point is below 5.5°C which is below 21°C. Thus, this liquid substance is "highly flammable" (R11) according 67/548/EEC (self classification) and "flam. liquid cat. 1 (extremely flammable liquid) " OR 2 according GHS.
Executive summary:

Due to the properties of the test item and the specification of the method, no exact flash point could be determined. The flash point could be specified being below 5.5°C.
