Key result
Flash point:
7 °C
Atm. press.:
101 kPa
Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (highly flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
A flash point value of 7°C was determined for the substance in a reliable study conducted according to method ASTM D-56. No further details are available.

Description of key information

Flash point: 7°C (ASTM D-56)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
7 °C

Additional information

A closed-cup flash point value of 7°C was reported for the substance in a study report according to an appropriate national standard method (ASTM D-56), but not in compliance with any known quality system. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.


The key study is supported by a flash point value of <79°C which was reported for the substance based on an open-cup method using ASTM D-92 test method.


In a secondary source to which reliability could not be assigned, a flash point value of -9°C was reported for the substance.


A flash point of 7°C and boiling point of 84.4°C indicate that the substance should be classified as a flammable liquid (Category 2) according to the criteria of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
