flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
5 June 1997 - 21 August 1997
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to same study
according to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Apparatus was as described in ASTM D93-80 except that a thermocouple was used instead of a thermometer.
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point:
192 °C
Atm. press.:
1 006.8 mBar

A blue halo was observed around the flame at 180°C or 188°C in the duplicate tests.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
The flash point of DPGDB was determined to be 192°C (PMCC).
Executive summary:

A flash point determination of the test material DPGDB was performed according to EC test guidelines, and in compliance with GLP.

The flash point was determined by the non-equilibrium method using a closed cap flashpoint apparatus. Duplicate determinations were performed.

The flash point of DPGDB was determined as 192°C.

Description of key information

The flash point of DPGDB has been determined as 192°C (465K) at 1006.8 mbar (HLS 1999, VCL249/972399).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
