Description of key information

Test A.10 is not applicable to a liquid.  Based on the known chemical and physical properties of the substance in use, negative results are predicted for the following flammability tests of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC, so it is considered justified to omit them: A.12 (Flammability in contact with water) & A.13 (Pyrophoric properties of solids and liquids)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flashpoint of dihydromyrcenol is 76 degrees C and it is not considered to be a flammable liquid.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the flash point of 76 degrees C and a boiling point of 193 degrees C, the classification of dihydromyrcenol with regard to flammability is considered to be:

- under Directive 67/548/EEC criteria, not classified

- under Regulation 1272/2008 (CLP GHS) criteria, not classified

- under UN GHS criteria, flammable liquid cat. 4
