Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

flammable solids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
31 July 2018 - 19 April 2019
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods
according to guideline
other: ASTM D7094: “Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Modified Continuously Closed Cup (MCCCFP) Tester”
Version / remarks:
not specified
Principles of method if other than guideline:
remark of reviewer:
Although ASTM D7094 (modified continuously closed cup) is not mentioned in the EC A.9 guideline, this method is a commonly used and safer (low sample volume) alternative for the ISO 2719 Pensky-Martens closed cup method.
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Eraflash (Eralytics, Austria)
similar principle as Setaflash apparatus
Dynamic viscosity of test material:
no data
Specific details on test material used for the study:
no boiling before decomposition (starts > 175°C)
Key result
Flash point:
15 °C
Remarks on result:
other: mean of 2 measurements

Test 1: 16°C

Test 2: 15°C

As the difference between the results is ≤ 2°C, the lowest flash point value obtained was reported as the flash point of the substance.

Interpretation of results:
other: Category 2 (highly flammable liquids)
As boiling of the substance was not observed below or at 35 degrees Celsius in reliable DSC experiments, Category 2 is considered applicable.
The flash-point of the substance was determined to be 15°C (at 1013 hPa).
