Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
28 February 2018 to 07 March 2018
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Batch No.of test material: 20141015
- Purity: 99.35%
- Expiration date of the lot/batch: January 2019
- Stability under test conditions: Room temperature
Key result
Test procedure:
step 4
Max. rate of gas release:
0 L/kg h
Identity of evolved gas:
not applicable as no gas evolved
Remarks on result:
only step 4 of test procedure conducted because substance does not react violently with water

0

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
For the initial tests, no gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed. For the final test, the generation of a flammable gas was less than 1 l.kg-1 of the substance per hour. The substance is therefore not classified as a substance which emits flammable gases in contact with water.
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
20 February 2018
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.13 (Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Batch No.of test material: 20141015
- Purity: 99.35%
- Expiration date of the lot/batch: January 2019
- Stability under test conditions: Room temperature
Key result
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks on result:
no ignition within 5 minutes
Key result
Test procedure:
effect on filter paper
Remarks on result:
no charring

Porcelain cup test (test 1): no ignition and no reaction was observed in any of the 6 repetitions.

Filter paper test (test 2): no ignition, no charring and no reaction was observed in any of the 3 repetitions.

Since no ignitions or charring was observed during any test, the sample is considered not pyrophoric.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The test item is not pyrophoric.

Description of key information

The test substance is not considered a substance which emits flammable gases after contact with water or a pyrophoric substance (K1, Dekra, 2018).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance does not need to be classified as pyrophoric or as a substance which emits flammable gases in contact with water.
