Description of key information

The flash point of the test material was determined in a GLP compliant study performed to the EU method A.9. The flash point of the test material was determined to be 110 ± 2 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
110 °C

Additional information

The key study selected for the assessment of the flash point of the test material was the study by Atwal et al (2010) as the study was performed to an internationally accepted guideline and the study was also GLP compliant and as such was considered of high reliability and adequate for use as a stand alone data source. The further two studies were provided as supporting information.

A reliability rating of 1 was assigned to this study, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997.

Supporting information is also available from a test material safety data sheet, Atofina Chemicals Inc. (2001).

A reliability rating of 4 was assigned to this study, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997 as this information is from a secondary source. The flash point for the test material is given as 210 °F (98.9 °C). The pressure was not reported.

For the ATSDR (2005) report a reliability rating of 4 was assigned to this study, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997 as this information is from a secondary source. The flash point for the test material is given as >230 °F (110 °C).
