Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
A flash point of 134 ± 2°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a relevant test method. The result is considered to be reliable.
Executive summary:

The determination was carried out using a closed cup flash point tester[1], using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A9 Flash Point of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.


[1]Based on, Anon (1983) Paints, Varnishes, Petroleum and Related Products - Determination of Flash Point - Rapid Equilibrium Method,International Standard ISO 3679-2004 (E), Second Edition –2004-04-01, P1-18 and Anon (1989) Flash Point of Liquids by Setaflash Closed-Cup Apparatus,ASTM D-3278-89, P1-7.

Conclusion

The test item has been determined to have a flash point of 134 ± 2°C.

 

Description of key information

Flash point: 134 ± 2°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
134 °C

Additional information

A measured flash point value of 134 ± 2°C was determined for the substance in accordance with ISO 3679; rapid equilibrium method and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable.

A measured flash point of 134 ± 2°C and a boiling range of 134 ± 2°C indicate that the submission substance should not be classified for flammability in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
