Results and discussion

Flash point
Key result
Flash point:
> 192 - < 196 °C
Atm. press.:
102.1 kPa

Any other information on results incl. tables

The flash point is the lowest temperature at 101.3 kPa, at which the test liquid in a closed test vessel evolves vapors, under the conditions defined in the test method, in such amount that a flammable vapor / air mixture was produced in the test vessel.

The flash point was corrected for the atmospheric pressure using the following equation:

Corrected flash point = C + 0.23 (101.325 - p)

where:

C = observed flash point [°C]

p = ambient atmospheric pressure [kPa]

The flashes at 77 and 157 °C could not be repeated with fresh samples therefore they are not considered to be the flash point of the test item.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item was determined to be 194 ± 2 °C.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test item was determined to be 194 ± 2 °C using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.9 Flash Point of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
