Conclusions:
The flash point of test chemical was determined to be 102°C at 976.9 hPa
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of test chemical was done by closed cup method using Pensky-Martens Flash Point Apparatus. The mean flash point of the test chemical was determined to be 102°C at 976.9 hPa.

Thus, according to flash point value the test chemical was not classified as flammable.

Description of key information

The flash point determination of test chemical was done by closed cup method using Pensky-Martens Flash Point Apparatus. The mean flash point of the test chemical was determined to be 102°C at 976.9 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
102 °C

Additional information

The flash point determination of test chemical was done by closed cup method using Pensky-Martens Flash Point Apparatus. The mean flash point of the test chemical was determined to be 102°C at 976.9 hPa.

Based on available data from obtained from other experimental report the flash point of test chemical was determined to be 107 deg C at 966 hPa by the open cup method.

Thus, according to flash point value the test chemical was not classified as flammable.
