guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)

Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Flash point:
87.5 °C
Atm. press.:
1 006.2 hPa
Flash point:
87.5 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013.3 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: The flash point corrected to 1013 hPa is rounded down with an accuracy of 0.5 °C: 87.7 °C.
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item is 87.5 °C under atmospheric conditions (1013.3 hPa).
Executive summary:

The purpose of this study was the determination of the flash point of the test item according to European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, A.9. Flash point: Pensky-Martens (DIN EN ISO 2719).

The test item was placed in a stirred test vessel (120/min) which was progressively heated (8.5 K/min for the preliminary test and 5.5 K/min for the main test) until the vapour reaches a sufficiently high concentration in air to produce a flammable mixture which could be ignited. A defined gas flame was used as ignition source. The flame was periodically dipped into the gas atmosphere of the test vessel (every 1 K).

The flash point of the test item is 87.5 °C under atmospheric conditions (1013.3 hPa).
