Materials and methods

Test guidelineopen allclose all
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
2016
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: ASTM D7094: “Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Modified Continuously Closed Cup (MCCCFP) Tester”
Version / remarks:
2012
Deviations:
no
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:
yes
Type of method:
other: modified continuously closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
other: Eraflash (Eralytics, Austria)

Results and discussion

Flash point
Key result
Remarks on result:
no flash point - measurement carried out until boiling temperature

Any other information on results incl. tables

In both tests, no flammable vapour/air mixture was produced at temperatures below the temperature at which boiling of the test item occurred. From this, it was concluded that the test item has no flashpoint.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: not classified under CLP or GHS
Conclusions:
No flash-point was observed below the temperature at which boiling of the test item occurred.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the substance was determined using the modified continuously closed cup ASTM D7094 method (GLP study). No flash-point was observed below the temperature at which boiling of the test item occurred.
