Description of key information

Expert Judgement
From the compositional description, the structural formula given, it can be concluded that it is not necessary to evaluate the ignition temperature of this substance by either the Self- or Auto-Ignition testing criteria indicated in the TGD.
There are no functional groups or other structural alerts present that indicate that this substance would spontaneously ignite in air when exposed to a hot surface and thus should not be classified as dangerous with respect to this endpoint.
This empirical evaluation is furthermore confirmed by long term handling experience. The study is therefore considered scientifically unjustified.
Therefore testing for Auto flammability does not need to be performed.
