Description of key information

The substance is not highly flammable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flammability of a freeze dried sample of the substance was assessed in accordance with the procedure described in EU Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A test A10. In the preliminary screening test the sample melted and then briefly ignited with an orange flame, which extinguished on removal of the ignition source. No propagation of this reaction was observed. On this basis the substance is classified as not highly flammable.

The substance is manufactured and placed on the market as an aqueous solution. From experience in use, the substance does not emit flammable gases in contact in water. Also from experience in use, solutions containing the substance are not pyrophoric.
