flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
according to guideline
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
Council Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008 of 30 May 2008
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
120 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa



Flash point at atmospheric pressure


Flash point corrected to a pressure of 1013 hPa [°C]

Preliminary test



Main test

First run



Second run



Mean value




Because the difference between the two main test measurements was <= 3.5 (mean value x 0.029), a second main test was not necessary.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
A flash point value of 120°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a relevant test method and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable.

Description of key information

Flash point: 120°C at 1013 hPa (ISO 2719)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
120 °C

Additional information

There are three reliable studies for the flash point of the submission substance. A measured flash point value of 120°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance using a non-equilibrium closed-cup method in accordance with ISO 2719 Test Method and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study. In other reliable studies, a flash point value of 107°C at 1013 hPa was determined using the seta-flash closed cup method and a value of 116.7°C at 1013 hPa was determined using ASTM D 3828-87 method. The key study has been selected as the study with the highest reliability and which was recently conducted.

In available secondary sources to which reliability could not be assigned, flash point values of 98-136°C were reported for the substance.

Differences in the flash point result could be due to differences in purity of the commercial samples tested and the test method used.

A measured flash point of 120°C and a predicted boiling point of 240°C, indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability according to the criteria of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
