Description of key information

Flash point: >61°C at 1013 hPa

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Hydrocarbons, C11-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics has a measured flash point of 86.5°C at 1013 hPa using a closed cup method. Full study details are not available therefore reliability could not be assigned to these data.

Reliable data are, however, available for related substances in the relevant carbon number range, including other Fischer-Tropsch process-derived substances.

In ISO 3679 studies using the rapid equilibrium method, which were conducted in compliance with GLP, Hydrocarbons, C10-C13, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (GS190), Hydrocarbons, C12-C15, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (GS215) and Hydrocarbons, C14-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (GS250) had measured flash point values of 61 ± 2°C, 86 ± 2°C and 111 ± 2°C at 1013 hPa respectively.

Also, a measured flash point value of 64°C using a Pensky-Martens Closed Cup method (ASTM D93 was obtained for Hydrocarbons, C10-C13, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics. In addition, Hydrocarbons, C10-C13, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics was observed not to sustain a flame >15 seconds in a sustained burning test which was performed in accordance with ASTM D4206 and in compliance with known quality system (ISO 9001).

The results are considered to be reliable and are used as weight of evidence.
