Description of key information

Flammability [hexachlorodisilane]: non flammable (EU A.13)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

The flammability of liquids is assessed on the basis of flash point.

In a reliable study conducted according to an appropriate test method (EU A.13), the test substance is reported as non-pyrophoric.

There is no indication on the basis of structure and experience in handling and use that the substance is flammable in contact with water. Therefore, in accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI, there is no need to conduct further flammability testing.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is not classified for flammability on the basis of a measured flash point of 77°C.

NOTE TO REVIEWERS: HETF approval needed to change previously agreed classification based on new measurement.
