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.

Executive summary:

An aliquot (2 g for temperatures up to 100 ºC and 4 g for temperatures above 100 ºC) of the

test item was transferred to the sample cup of the Setaflash 30000-0 tester. The sample was

heated and allowed to equilibrate at the set temperature. The test flame was introduced into

the sample cup for approximately 2½ seconds by sliding the cup shutter open. Observations

were made for ignition of the vapor. If no ignition occurred, the temperature was increased

and the test flame re-introduced. This was repeated until the lowest reproducible temperature

at which a flash occurred, using a fresh sample, was determined.

There was an occurrence where a flash occurred at a temperature not consistent with the other

observations. A fresh sample of test item was used and a replicate flash was not observed. It

was unknown why this flash occurred but it may have been for reasons other than solely due

to the test item.
