flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
from 27-12-2016 to 28-12-2016
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Internationally recognised standard, but not listed in EU guideline; non-GLP. Test substance adequately identified. Considered sufficient for classification purpose. Therefore validation applies, with restrictions.
according to
ISO No., other: ASTM D6450-99 Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Continuously Closed Cup (CCCFP) Tester
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Storage condition of test material: between 15 and 35ºC, light protected
Key result
Flash point:
> 200 °C
Remarks on result:
other: Accuracy: +/- 1ºC

Test 1: <200 ºC

Test 2: <200 ºC

Test 3: <200 ºC

Interpretation of results:
other: EU-CLP criteria not met
The flash point of test substance is above the classification threshold of 60°C, therefore, it is not considered as a flammable liquid according to CLP criteria.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was determined according to ASTM closed cup method, with triplicate measurement. The value was >200ºC.

Description of key information

The substance is NOT classified as flammable liquid according to CLP Regulation (EU) criteria. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
200 °C

Additional information

A reliable experimental study, conducted according to ASTM guideline, closed cup method, is available. Despite acceptable restrictions, and non-GLP, it is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data. This study is relevant for the classification as not flammable.
