Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
November 27th, 2012 - April 7th, 2013
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO No., other: United Nations (UN), UN no. ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5: Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Part III: Classification Procedures, Test Methods and Criteria Relating to Classes 2, 3, 4, Division 5.1, Classes 8 and 9, Paragraph 32.4.1, 2009.
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
(2008)
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO No., other: ASTM International, ASTM D 93: “Standard Test Methods for Flash Point by Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Tester”, December 10, 2002.
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Remarks:
(Pensky-Martens)
Key result
Flash point:
176 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: Test 1: 176 °C, Test 2: 178 °C. The difference between the results was ≤ 6°C; the reported flash point is the lowest flash point value obtained.
Interpretation of results:
other: Not flammable according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008
Conclusions:
The flash point of the tested substance was determind to be 176 °C using the Pensky-Martens closed-cup method (in accordance with UN ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5, EC A.9, ISO 2719, ASTM D93 and in compliance with GLP). Because the flash point is > 60°C, the test substance is not a flammable liquid according to the CLP Regulation.

Description of key information

The flash point of the tested substance

was determind to be 176 °C using the

Pensky-Martens closed-cup method

(in accordance with

UN ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5, EC A.9, ISO 2719,

ASTM D93 and in compliance with GLP).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
176 °C

Additional information

Because the flash point is > 60°C, the test substance is not a flammable liquid according to the CLP Regulation.
