flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
read-across based on grouping of substances (category approach)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From November 2008 to January 2009
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
KL2 due to RA
Justification for type of information:
Refer to section 13 of IUCLID for details on the category justification.
equivalent or similar to guideline
other: ASTMD6450-99
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
191 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa


The flash point of amides, C8-18 (even numbered) and C18-unsatd., N-(hydroxyethyl) is 191 ± 0.2ºC at 101.3 kPa.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flash point of structurally similar amides, C8-18 (even numbered) and C18-unsatd., N-(hydroxyethyl) in accordance with ISO 2719 and EU Method A.9 using standard Pensky-Martens closed cup method. The flash point of the substance amounted to 191ºC which indicates that amides, C12-18 (even numbered) and C18-unsatd., N-(hydroxyethyl) does not meet the criteria for classification as flammable according to EC (67/548/EEC) and CLP (EC 1272/2008) criteria.

Description of key information

The flash point was determined according to ISO Method 2719 and EU Method A.9 using a standard Pensky-Martens closed cup method (Carrillo, 2008).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
191 °C
