Reference
Endpoint:
flash point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
July 2012
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Conducted in accordance with ASTM D 92–05 Standard Test Method for Flash and Fire Points by Cleveland Open Cup Tester. This is a non-GLP method, and is considered to be a K2 study, on the basis that it is an accepted method and describes the flash and fire points of oil based products accurately.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
ISO No., other: ASTM D 92–05 Standard Test Method for Flash and Fire Points by Cleveland Open Cup Tester
Deviations:
no
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Approximately 70 mL of test specimen is filled into a test cup. The temperature of the test specimen is increased rapidly at first and then at a slower constant rate as the flash point is approached. At specified intervals a test flame is passed across the cup. The flash point is the lowest liquid temperature at which application of the test flame causes the vapors of the test specimen of the sample to ignite. To determine the fire point, the test is continued until the application of the test flame causes the test specimen to ignite and sustain burning for a minimum of 5 s.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
open cup
Flash point:
226 °C
Atm. press.:
101.325 kPa
Remarks on result:
other: Standard RTP is assumed for the test.

The Fire Point of the substance was determined to be 250 °C. The substance is not considered to be highly flammable.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The Flash Point of the substance was determined to be 226 °C.The Fire Point of the substance was determined to be 250 °C. The substance is not considered to be highly flammable or flammable.
Executive summary:

The Flash Point of the substance was determined to be 226 °C.The Fire Point of the substance was determined to be 250 °C. The substance is not considered to be highly flammable or flammable. No classification is applicable.
