Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point value of 107°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a relevant test method and in compliance with a known quality system (ISO 9001:2008). The result is considered to be reliable.

Description of key information

Flash Point: 107°C at 1013 hPa (ISO 3679)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
107 °C

Additional information

A measured flash point value of 107°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the registered substance using a relevant closed-cup method in accordance with ISO 3679 Test Method and in compliance with a known quality system (ISO 9001:2008). The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

In available secondary sources to which reliability could not be assigned, flash point value of 85°C was reported for the substance.

A measured flash point of 107°C at 1013 hPa and a measured boiling point of 223°C at 998.2 hPa indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
