Description of key information

In accordance with REACH Annex XI this study is scientifically unjustified.  The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of Oxooel LS9 does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case. The flashpoint indicates that Oxooel LS9 is a Category 2 -highly flammable liquid. Oxooel LS9 was placed in this hazard class because it has a flash point of 8 °C and the boiling point of 120 °C and therefore meets the criteria of Category 2 for flammability (flash point < 23 °C and boiling point  of > 35 °C).
