Description of key information

Not pyrophoric upon contact with diatomaceous earth and filter paper matrices

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The pyrophoric properties of Tin bis(2-ethylhexanoate) were investigated according to EU Method A.13, by contacting the substance with dry diatomaceous earth and filter paper matrices for 5 min. As such contact did not result in spontaneous ignition, smoldering, or charing, the substance was concluded to be not pyrophoric. This conclusion is consistent with the absence of known pyrophoric functional groups of the test substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Flash Point of 137 °C, which is > 93 °C

Auto-ignition temperature > 400 °C

Non-pyrophoric, and lacking pyrophoric functional groups
