Description of key information

The substance was concluded not to be flammable following a theoretical assessment in a GLP study according to test method EC A.12 (statement) and A.13 (statement) (Van der Baan-Treur, 2003). The conclusion from the theoretical assessment is confirmed by experience from handling the substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Based on the theoretical assessment and experience in handling it is concluded that the substance is incapable of developing dangerous amounts of (flammable) gas when coming into contact with water.

The substance is concluded not to be flammable in contact with air as based on the chemical structure no pyrophoric properties are expected. Experience in handling confirms that the substance does not ignite coming into contact with air.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash-point of the substance was determined to be 126 °C at 101 325 Pa and is therefore outside the range relevant for classification and labelling under the DSD (<55 °C) and CLP (<60 or <75 °C).

Furthermore, the substance is concluded not to have pyrophoric properties or to be flammable in contact with water, both based on a theoretical assessment and on experience from handling the substance.
