Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point determination of test chemical was done by following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and the mean flash point was determined to be 117°C at 976.6hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of test chemical was done by following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and the mean flash point was determined to be 117°C at 976.6hPa.

Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point > 60 degree C hence it was considered to be non-flammable.

Description of key information

The flash point determination of test chemical was done by following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and the mean flash point was determined to be 117°C at 976.6hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
117 °C

Additional information

The flash point determination of test chemical was done by following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and the mean flash point was determined to be 117°C at 976.6hPa.

From the authoritative database flash point of the test substance was determined to be > 110 °C.

Thus, based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point > 60 degree C hence it was considered to be non-flammable.
