Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Remarks:
The study was conducted in accordance with a relevant test method but not in compliance with GLP.
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Deviations:
not specified
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Not stated
Flash point:
101 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point of 101°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a relevant test method. The result is considered reliable.

Description of key information

Flash point: 91.0 ± 1.0°C at 1013 hPa (ISO 3679)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
91 °C

Additional information

A measured flash point of 91.0 ± 1.0°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a rapid equilibrium closed-cup method in accordance with ISO 3679 Test Method and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

The key value is supported by other flash point values of 101°C and 126°C which were determined for the substance using relevant closed-cup methods.

In other available secondary sources to which reliability could not be assigned, flash point values of 90°C, >93.4°C and >100°C were reported for the substance.

Differences in flash point obtained could be due to differences in the purity of the commercial samples tested and the test method used.

A flash point of 91.0 ± 1.0°C at 1013 hPa with a predicted boiling point of 240°C at 1013 hPa indicate that the substance should not be classified as a flammable liquid according to the criteria of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
