Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From 08 April 2010 to 21 May 2010
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: compliant to GLP and testing guideline; adequate coherence between data, comments and conclusions
according to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
-8 °C
Atm. press.:
98.2 kPa

Preliminary test:

Atmospheric pressure: About 98.3 kPa

Relative humidity: About 41% of saturated air

Tested temperature range: Between - 9.3 and 30.0 °C (corrected values)

The flash point was observed between - 9.3 and - 3.8 °C (corrected values).

Remark: During this preliminary test, as the temperature tested was much higher than the flash point temperature obtained, a continuous, growing flame was observed and by inadvertence was not considered as a flash point. Then, the test item was cooled and the flash point find between - 9.3 and - 3.8 °C.

The flash point of the test item was: - 8.0 ± 0.5 °C (corrected value).
