Description of key information

The flash point of the test substance was determined to be 117.5 °C at 101.3 kPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
117.5 °C

Additional information

A study was conducted according to Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.9, DIN EN ISO 3679 and OPPTS 830.6315 to determine the flash point of the test item using a closed cup method. The start temperature for the main test (115 °C) was chosen based on preliminary test results. Approx. 4 mL of the test item was filled in the cup and heated to the estimated temperature. The measured flash point at atmospheric pressure was corrected to a standard pressure of 1013 hPa. The flash point was determined to be at 117.53 °C (corrected to the ambient pressure). Thus, the flash point of the test item was determined to be 117.5 °C (corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C) at 1013.25 hPa. No observations were made which cause doubt on the validity of the outcome of the study.
