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).
