Description of key information

Flash point [dodecamethylcyclohexasiloxane]: 91°C at 776 mmHg (ASTM D93)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
91 °C

Additional information

A flash point value of 91°C at 776 mmHg was determined for the substance using a closed-cup method according to ASTM D93 Test Method. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study. In the same report, a flash point value of 109°C at 755 -759 mmHg was reported for the substance using an open-cup method according to ASTM D92.

A measured flash point of 91°C at 1013 hPa and a boiling point of 245°C at 1013 hPa indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability in accordance with the criteria of Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008.
