Key result
Flash point:
47.3 °C
Remarks on result:
other: mean of three measurements

- Flash point measured in test 1: 48.0 °C

- Flash point measured in test 2: 47.0 °C

- Flash point measured in test 3: 47.0 °C

- Mean flash point = 47.3°C Atmospheric pressure not specfied, assumed to be ambient.

Conclusions:
The substance is classified as Flammable Liquid (cat.3) according to Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP) criteria, and Flammable (R10) according to Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) criteria.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was measured according to ASTM D6450 method, using a closed cup apparatus. Determination was performed in triplicate, and the mean value of 47°C was retained (rounded to the nearest °C).

Accuracy is considered sufficient for classification purpose.

Description of key information

A suitable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized ASTM closed cup method, is available. Therefore, it is considered as a key study. The result is retained as key data. This result is relevant for the classification regarding flammable properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
