Key result
Flash point:
60.5 °C

Executive summary:


The flash point of the test substance was determined in accordance with the procedure described in EU Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A test A9.


The closed cup method, and due to the nature of the test material, procedure B as described in the guideline was used for the flash point determination.

The sample is heated at a rate of 1 to 1.6°C per minute with continual stirring at 250 ± 10 rpm in a closed cup (volume ca. 100 cm3). A small flame with a diameter of 3.2 to 4.8 mm is directed into the cup containing the sample, at regular intervals, with simultaneous interruption of stirring. The flash point is the lowest temperature at which the application of a flame results in an ignition of the vapour, above the sample.

The test was undertaken at an atmospheric pressure of 100 kPa and the result adjusted for sea level pressure (101.3 kPa).



The flash point of the test substance was 60.5°C (Corrected for sea level atmospheric pressure).



The test substance has a flash point of 60.5 °C at 101.3 kPa (sea level).
