flash point of flammable liquids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the flash point is only relevant to liquids and low melting point solids

Description of key information

The endpoint is waived: Substance decomposes before the flashpoint is reached. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
178 °C

Additional information

Self-Accelerating Decomposition Temperature (SADT) of the substance is 90 ºC (reference SADT: CLP regulations and UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, sub-sections 28.1, 28.2, 28.3 and Table 28.3.)

See also ECHA guidance on the application of the CLP criteria, section 2.14

See 4.13 Flammability: Bis(4-methylbenzoyl)peroxide is classified as a peroxide type D with a SADT of 90 ºC.

Calculation is only an estimation and does not include the possibility of degradation, calculated value is above the SADT.
