Remarks on result:
other: Duplicate determination; completed at atmospheric pressure

Preliminary test

The estimated flash-point of the test item was 124°C.

Main test

There was no difference between the results obtained with the two tests (125°C). From this, it was concluded that the flash-point of the test substance is the obtained flash-point.

Conclusions:
The flash point of the test substance has been determined to be 125 °C at 1 atmosphere pressure.
Executive summary:

The flash point was determined using EU Method A.9 closed cup equilibrium method. Starting at 50°C and attempting to ignite the test substance for every 2°C temperature rise a preliminary estimate of the flashpoint was determined as 124°C. A further definitive test was completed in duplicate which indicated the flashpoint was 125°C. Under the conditions of the study, the flash-point of the test substance is 125 °C at atmospheric pressure.
