Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

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.

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 <= 1°C (here: 1 °C), a second main test was not necessary.


The flash point of the test item was determined according to EU test method A.9 [Council Regulation (EC)No 440/2008,Official Journal L 142/12008] with the Abel method (closed cup).


Flash point: 29.5 °C (at 1013 hPa)

Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
A flash point value of 29.5 °C at 1013 hPa was determined in a reliable study conducted according to an appropriate test protocol, and in compliance with GLP.
