Reference
Endpoint:
flash point, other
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
March 17, 2015
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study without detailed documentation
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
> 100 °C
Remarks on result:
no flash point up to 100°C
Remarks:
Testing was interrupted to prevent thermal polymerization and potential decomposition.

Table:

 Test  Mixture / compound tested Starting temperature, °C   Flash point, °C
 1  Test substance  25  No flash up to 100°C
 2  Test substance  76  No flash up to 100°C
 3  Test substance  76  No flash up to 100°C

No flashing was detected in the tests up to ~100°C when the test substance was tested in a Pensky-Martens closed cup tester. The exact flash point could not be determined since testing was interrupted at 100°C in order to prevent thermal polymerization and potential decomposition of the test substance in the tester. The test results showed that the flash point of the test substance was higher than 100°C.

Interpretation of results:
other: CLP criteria not met
Remarks:
not classified
Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, testing was interrupted at 100°C in order to prevent thermal polymerization and potential decomposition of the test substance in the tester. The test results showed that the flash point of the test substance was higher than 100°C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flash point of the test substance, according to ISO 2719 (Pensky-Martens closed cup method). Three flash point tests were performed on the samples.

No flashing was detected in the tests up to ~100°C when the test substance was tested in a Pensky-Martens closed cup tester. The exact flash point could not be determined since testing was interrupted at 100°C in order to prevent thermal polymerization and potential decomposition of the test substance in the tester. Under the study conditions, the flash point of the test substance was higher than 100°C (Martens, 2015).

Description of key information

The flash point of the test substance was determined according to ISO 2719 (Pensky-Martens closed cup method) (Martens, 2015).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
100 °C

Additional information

 No flashing was detected in the tests up to ~100°C. Higher temperatures were not tested to avoid polymerisation or decomposition of the test substance.
