Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
22 July 2010
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO No., other: Pensky Martens Closed Cup apparatus
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Flash point measured using a manual Pensky Martens Closed Cup apparatus. The sample was heated to 150 ºC and an ignition source was introduced. The sample was then heated slowly, with the ignition source re-introduced at 10 ºC intervals, until a flash point was observed.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
> 170 - < 180 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 101 325 Pa

The sample was observed to flash at 180 ºC.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of Fatty acids, C12-20 and C12-20-unsatd., 2-ethylhexyl esters is in the range 170-180 ºC.
Executive summary:

The flash point of Fatty acids, C12-20 and C12-20-unsatd., 2-ethylhexyl esters (Lankroplast V3000) Batch 009016 was measured using a manual Pensky Martens Closed Cup apparatus. The sample was heated to 150 ºC, and an ignition source was introduced. The sample was then heated slowly, with the ignition source re-introduced at 10ºC intervals, until a flash point was observed. The sample was observed to flash first at 180 ºC. The flash point of Fatty acids, C12-20 and C12-20-unsatd., 2-ethylhexyl esters is in the range 170-180 ºC.

Description of key information

The flash point of Fatty acids, C12-20 and C12-20-unsatd., 2-ethylhexyl esters is in the range 170-180ºC.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
180 °C
