Description of key information

The flash point of Alcohols, C12-15, branched and linear is 135°C at 1013 hPa

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
135 °C

Additional information

A flash point value of 135°C at 1013 hPa was determined for Alcohols, C12-15, branched and linear with the use of a closed-cup method in accordance with ASTM D93. The result is considered to be reliable.

A flash point of 135°C and boiling point of 278.8°C indicate that Alcohols, C12-15, branched and linear should not be classified as a flammable liquid in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

The flash point of Category substances follow a predictable trend of increasing flash point temperature with increasing chain length together with increasing boiling point and decreasing vapour pressure.
