flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
experimental dates: 22/01/2018
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
The study was conducted according to an internationally recognised method. The substance is considered to be adequately characterised with composition. Validation applies with restrictions as non-GLP.

Assay n°








Interpretation of results:
Category 4 (combustible liquids) based on GHS criteria
Not classified based on EU-CLP criteria
The substance is NOT classified as a flammable liquid according to CLP criteria (FP>60°C).
GHS Flam.Liq.4 (FP< 93°C).
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was determined (non-GLP) according to ASTM D6450 (compatible with EU A.9 guideline), using a closed cup equilibrium method.

Triplicate determinations were conducted. For safety reason, the lowest value was retained.

The flash point of the test substance has been determined to be 84°C.

Description of key information

The substance is NOT classified as flammable liquid according to Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP) criteria.

The substance is classified as FLAMMABLE LIQUID category 4 according to UN GHS criteria.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
84 °C

Additional information

A reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized EU/ASTM method, is available. Despite restrictions as non-GLP, it is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
