Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
23 March 2012 - 29 August 2012
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: The substance does ignite but does not propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering.

The test substance melted and burned with a yellow flame, which extinguished 4 seconds after the removal of the ignition source.

Interpretation of results:
other: not classified based on GHS or CLP criteria
Conclusions:
BMI was found not to be a flammable solid.
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
other:
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
Experience in handling (e.g. during the performance of studies) demonstrated that the substance does not ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperatures.

Description of key information

Not a flammable solid (EC A.10: preliminary screening test)

No pyrophoric properties (based on experience in handling)

Not highly flammable in contact with water (based on experience in handling and structural features)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Classification or non-classification according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008:

Not a flammable solid, not a pyrophoric solid and no classification for the hazard "Substances which in contact with water emits flammable gases'

Since the melting temperature of the substance is below 160°C, the substance need not be considered for CLP classification in the 'Self-heating substances' class.
