Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2016
Reliability:

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test substance is above the classification thresholds of 60°C (CLP criteria) and 93°C (GHS criteria). Therefore, the substance is NOT classified as a flammable liquid.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was determined according to EU A.9 guideline, using a closed cup method.

The result has been determined to be 179°C, corrected to normal atmP.
