Atmospheric pressure = 101.46 kPa

Corrected flash point = 106.969 °C

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point value of 107±2°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a relevant test method and in compliance with GLP. The result is consider to be reliable.

Description of key information

Flash point: 107°C (ISO 3679:2004)

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 obtained for the substance using a relevant test method and in compliance with GLP. 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 values of 104°C and 120°C at 1013 hPa were reported for the substance.

A flash point of 107°C at 1013 hPa and a predicted boiling point of 260°C indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability according to the criteria of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
