Key result
Flash point:
13.18 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa
Remarks on result:
other: corrected to ambient temperature

In the preliminary test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 13.0 °C.

In the main test the lowest temperature where an ignition was observed was 13.0 °C. The mean measured flash point is corrected to the ambient pressure to be 13.18 °C.

Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (highly flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The test item had a flash point of 13.18 °C.
Executive summary:

The test item has a flash point of 13.18°C as determined according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9. Flash Point, closed cup, Abel apparatus. First a preliminary test was performed to have a proxy for the flash point. In the main test, two replicate measurements were performed. The test item was found to have a flash point of 13.18°C (corrected for atmospheric pressure).

Description of key information

The test item has a flash point of 13.18 °C (average corrected) as measured according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
13.18 °C

Additional information

According to the EU Regulation No. 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) the substance is considered to be classified as category 2 flammable liquid because the flash point is < 23 °C and the boiling point is > 35 °C (Table 2.6.1).
