Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
10/06/2009 – 11/06/2009
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of method:
closed cup
Remarks:
Pensky-Martens closed cup apparatus
Atm. press.:
other: the approximately 215°C fire-point no flash observed therefore, testing was terminated.
Remarks on result:
other: No flash observed; the fire-point was reached at approximately 215°C therefore testing was terminated.

No flash observed; the fire-point was reached at approximately 215°C therefore testing was terminated. It was suspected the sample started to decompose at approximately 175°C as the temperature reading started to fluctuate and small amounts of grey vapour were produced.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No flashpoint observed; the fire-point was reached at approximately 215°C therefore testing was terminated. It was suspected the sample started to decompose at approximately 175°C as the temperature reading started to fluctuate and small amounts of grey vapour were produced.

Description of key information

No flash observed; the fire-point was reached at approximately 215°C therefore testing was terminated. It was suspected the sample started to decompose at approximately 175°C as the temperature reading started to fluctuate and small amounts of grey vapour were produced.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
