flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From June 12, 2017 to September 20, 2017
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
equivalent or similar to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
according to guideline
other: ASTM D7094: “Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Modified Continuously Closed Cup (MCCCFP) Tester”
Version / remarks:
not specified
Principles of method if other than guideline:
According to ECA.9 the flash point can be determined by an equilibrium method or a non-equilibrium method. Several methods are mentioned in the guideline. ASTM D7094 is not one of the methods mentioned in the guideline but is a commonly used and safer (low sample volume) alternative for the non-equilibrium ISO 2719 Pensky Martens closed cup method.
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
other: modified continuously closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Eraflash (Eralytics, Austria)
Dynamic viscosity of test material:
no data (the substance is a paste at room temperature)
Key result
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: no flash point up to 214°C

No flammable vapour/air mixture was produced at temperatures up to 212/214°C. Based on visual observation after the test, the test substance had reacted and/or decomposed during the test. 


Interpretation of results:
other: not classified under CLP or GHS
Under the study conditions, the test substance has no flash point up to 214°C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flash point of the test substance according to the modified continuously closed cup ASTM D7094 method. Under the study conditions, the test substance has no flash point up to 214°C (Reingruber, 2017).

Description of key information

The flash point was determined according to ASTM D7094 and a method equivalent to EU Method A.9 (Reingruber, 2017).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
214 °C
