guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of method:
equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
ca. 32.1 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 748.6 mm Hg

- The test material exhibited a mean flash point at 32.1 ºC at a barometric pressure of 748.6 mmHg.

- For the test material the resulting flash point event manifested itself as a sudden release of gas vapours which extinguished the flame.

- The gasous vapours appeared to have a slight yellowish hue surrounding the gas.

Interpretation of results:
other: EU criteria category 3. H226: flammable liquid and vapour
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of this study, the test material exhibited a mean flash point at 32.1 °C at a barometric pressure of 748.6 mmHg.
