Additional information

Hydrocarbons, C16-C22, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics has a measured flash point of 137.5°C at 1013 hPa using a closed cup method. Full study details are not available therefore reliability could not be assigned to these data.

Reliable data are, however, available for related substances in the relevant carbon number range, including other Fischer-Tropsch process-derived substances.

In ISO 3679 studies using the rapid equilibrium method, which which were conducted in compliance with GLP, Hydrocarbons, C15-C19, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (GS270) and Hydrocarbons, C18-C24, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (GS310) had measured flash point values of 134 ± 2°C and 170 ± 2°C at 1013 hPa respectively. The results are considered to be reliable and are used as weight of evidence.
