other: non-flammable
Conclusions:
The flash point of 2-methyl-4-nitroaniline is 157.3 degree C at 972.9hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of test substance 2-methyl-4-nitroaniline was done as per the test guideline OECD 103. The method is closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flashpoint of the test substance was determined to be 157.3 degree C at 972.9 hPa. Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the substance was considered to be non-flammable.

Additional information

From laboratory study, the flash point of test substance 2-methyl-4-nitroaniline was done as per the test guideline OECD 103. The method is closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flashpoint of the test substance was determined to be 157.3 degree C at 972.9 hPa. As the study has K1 reliability considered as key study. Supported to this report, data from Gestis database determined the flash point as 157 degree C. Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the substance was considered to be non-flammable.
