Description of key information

Flash point: 93.5°C at 1013 hPa (ISO 3679)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
93.5 °C

Additional information

A flash point value of 93.5°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a rapid equilibrium method in accordance with ISO 3679 Test Method and in compliance with a known quality system (ISO 9001:2008). The result is considered to be reliable.

In available secondary sources to which reliability could not be assigned, flash point values of 102°C and 160°C were reported for the substance.

A flash point value of 93.5°C indicates that the substance should not be classified for flammability in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
