Atmospheric pressure = 99.5 kPa

Corrected flash point = 73.42°C

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point of 73°C was determined for the substance in accordance with EU Method A.9 and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered reliable.

Description of key information

Flash point [tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol]: 73°C (ISO 3679)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
73 °C

Additional information

A measured flash point of 73±2°C was determined for the substance in accordance with ISO 3679 and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and was selected as key study. This value is supported by flash point value of 183°F (83.9°C) which was reported for the substance in a peer reviewed source and in which the original sources are traceable. Similarly, a flash point of 75°C using an open cup method was reported for tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol in two secondary sources to which no reliability could be assigned.
