Specific details on test material used for the study:
SOURCE OF TEST MATERIAL
- Source and lot/batch No.of test material: 116B2018
- Physical state: colourless liquid
- Purity:96.7%
- Purity test date: 9 August 2016
- Expiration date of the lot/batch: 31 March 2018

STABILITY AND STORAGE CONDITIONS OF TEST MATERIAL
- Storage condition of test material: ambient temperature (10 °C to 30 °C)
Key result
Flash point:
30 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa

In the main test, the test material ignited at 30.5 °C but did not ignite at 30.0 °C at 1020.8 hPa. The flash point was corrected to a pressure of 1013 hPa using the formula:

Flp. = C + 0.025 (1013 - p)

where FLP.: flash point corrected to 1013 hPa in °C

C: measured flash point in °C

p: ambient pressure in hPa

According to the guideline, the temperaturefor the final flash point is rounded down with an accuracy of 0.5 °C. The lowest flash point corrected to 1013 hPa was 30.3 °C and by rounding down to the nearest 0.5 °C, was determined as 30.0 °C.

Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of PPVE-2 was 30.0 °C under atmospheric conditions (1013 hPa) according to EU Method A.9.
Executive summary:

The flash point of PPVE-2 was tested using a closed-cup method. In the main test, the flash point was determined with temperature steps of 0.5 K. The test material ignited at 30.5 °C but did not ignite at 30.0 °C at 1020.8 hPa. The lowest flash point corrected to 1013 hPa was rounded down to the nearest 0.5 °C, and was determined as 30.0 °C. The study was conducted in accordance with EU Method A.9 and was GLP compliant; therefore the study is considered reliable without restrictions.

Endpoint:

Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
documentation insufficient for assessment
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
>= 93.3 °C
Interpretation of results:
study cannot be used for classification
Conclusions:
The flash point of PPVE-2 is ≥ 93.3 °C using a closed cup method.
Executive summary:

The flash point of PPVE-2 is ≥ 93.3 °C using a closed cup method. Only the result was reported on the SDS and no information about the pressure or method details were provided; therefore the reliability of the data is not assignable.

Endpoint:

Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Study period:
12 Sep 2001
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study without detailed documentation
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ASTM D3278 (Standard test methods for flash point of liquids by small scale closed-cup apparatus)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
The test substance is solid and was tested only up to 93°C (200°F). The test method is intended for liquids with a flash point between 0 and 110°C (32 and 230°F).
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Setaflash apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
>= 93 °C

No flash was detected at any tested temperature. The highest temperature tested for flash was 93 °C (200 °F).

Interpretation of results:
study cannot be used for classification
Conclusions:
The flash point of PPVE-2 is ≥ 93.3 °C using a closed cup method (ASTM D-3278).
Executive summary:

The flash point of PPVE-2 was tested using a closed cup flash-point apparatus. The test was performed at specific temperatures of 53 °F, 70 °F, 100 °F, and 200 °F. No flash was observed up to the highest temperature tested (93 °C or 200 °F). This study was conducted in accordance with ASTM D-3278 but is not compliant with GLP standards. Also, the test guideline calls for flash point to be tested up to 110 °C for flash/no flash. Therefore the study is classified as reliable with restrictions.

Description of key information

The flash point of PPVE-2 was 30.0 °C under atmospheric conditions (1013 hPa) according to EU Method A.9.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In the key study, the flash point of PPVE-2 was tested using a closed-cup method. The flash point was determined with temperature steps of 0.5 K. The test material ignited at 30.5 °C but did not ignite at 30.0 °C at 1020.8 hPa. The lowest flash point corrected to 1013 hPa was rounded down to the nearest 0.5 °C, and was determined as 30.0 °C. The study was conducted in accordance with EU Method A.9 and was GLP compliant; therefore the study is considered reliable without restrictions. In a supporting study, the flash point of PPVE-2 was tested using a closed cup flash-point apparatus. The test was performed at specific temperatures of 53 °F, 70 °F, 100 °F, and 200 °F. No flash was observed up to the highest temperature tested (93 °C or 200 °F). This study was conducted in accordance with ASTM D-3278 but is not compliant with GLP standards. Also, the test guideline calls for flash point to be tested up to 110 °C for flash/no flash. Therefore the study is classified as reliable with restrictions. An additional study reported the flash point of PPVE-2 as ≥ 93.3 °C using a closed cup method. Only the result was reported on the SDS and no information about the pressure or method details were provided; therefore the reliability of the data is not assignable.
