Key result
Flash point:
28 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
A flash point of 28.0 °C was determined (1013 hPa).
Executive summary:

According to the German standard method "DIN EN ISO 13736 (closed cup)" a flash point of 28.0 °C was determined (1013 hPa). Therefore methyl valerate has to be classified as a flammable liquid, Category 3 in the sense of the CLP-Directive.

Description of key information

Methyl valerate exhibited a flash point of 28 °C measured at 1013 hPa. In another study a flash point of 25.5 °C was obtained at 1013 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
28 °C

Additional information

In another study a flash point of 25.5 °C was obtained for methyl valerate at 1013 hPa. Thus, methyl valerate is a flammable liquid, Category 3 in the sense of the CLP-Directive.
