Additional information

There is one reliable key study for this endpoint. In this study (Brekelmans M., 2011), the determination of the flash point of the test item was performed in compliance with the GLP principles and in accordance with the following guidelines:

·    EEC Directive 92/69, Part A, Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties, A.9 (Flash point), EEC Publication No.L383, December 1992.

·    ASTMD 93-85, Standard Test Methods for Flash Point by Pensky-Martens Closed Tester, December 10, 2002.

·    EN22719Petroleum Products and Lubricants - Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method (ISO 2719: 1988),

·    Council Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008,30 May 2008, Part A, Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties, A.9 (Flash point)

The Pensky-Martens closed cup method was applied for the determination of the flash-point of DIMETHYL GLUTARATE.

The flash-point of the test substance was 109°C.
