Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (highly flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item was measured to be 11.8 ºC at atmospheric pressure.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item was measured to be 11.8 ºC at standard pressure of 1013 hPa in a study run to ASTM D3278 (closed cup). As the boiling point of the test item was measured to be 130.9 ºC at atmospheric pressure, the substance is classified as a flammable liquid category 2 under EU CLP regulation, and a highly flammable liquid category 2 under UN-GHS.
