Results and discussion

Flash point
Flash point:
294 °C
Remarks on result:
other: The barometric pressure at the time of testing was 999 mbar and, thus, no pressure correction was required. The duplicate determined flash points were 294°C and 296°C, the lower of which will be reported as the flash point for safety assessment purposes.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The Flashpoint was determined to be 294˚C using the Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Flash Point apparatus using the non-equilibrium method.
