The flash point of the substance is determined to -6 °C at 1013.25 hPa

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
-6 °C

Additional information

A study was conducted (BASF AG 1993, SIK-Nr. 93/0092) according to Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 Part A, A.9 to determine the flash point. Using the closed cup method according to DIN 51755 the flash point was determined to be -6°C. This value is supplemented by two independent literature values. The National fire Protection association reports the flash point to be -9°C and the GESTIS database reports the flash point to be -12 °C. All three values are in the same range. Therefore the experimental value was regarded as most reliable, as in the study information about the purity was provided. Therefore -6 °C was chosen as key value for chemical safety assessment.
