Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
no data
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Test was performed according to international guideline (DIN 51758)
equivalent or similar to guideline
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002. Remark: DIN 51758
no duplo was conducted instead a literature value in the laboratory database was used for comparison (value 204 °C)
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
219 °C
Remarks on result:
other: Atm. press. not reported

Pressure of the measurement was not recorded in the report.

A duplo measurement was not conducted. instead a comparison with a value from the testlaboratories database was done. The database value was 204 °C. The reason given for this approach was that, according to the report, for practical purposes the difference between value of 219 °C and 204 °C has no consequence.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
The flash point of 2-Ethylhexyl 4-methoxycinnamate was determined according to DIN guideline 51758 and was found to be 219 °C.
Executive summary:

The flaspoint of 2-Ethylhexyl 4-methoxycinnamate was determined according to the DIN 51758 guideline. Ignition occurred at 219 °C, but a duplo to confirm this result was not carried out. Instead a value of 204 °C from the laboratory database was used as a duplo. As 204 °C is the lower of the two values, this value was used as the flash point.

Description of key information

Flash point: 204 °C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
204 °C

Additional information

The flash point of Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate was found to be 204 °C in the key study.
