Description of key information

After correction for the atmospheric pressure, the flash point of Reaction mass of Dimethyl adipate (CAS 627-93-0), Dimethyl glutarate (CAS 1119-40-0) and Dimethyl succinate (CAS 106-65-0) was determined to be 99 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
99 °C
