EC number: 500-078-0
CAS number: 31923-84-9
1 - 4.5 moles propoxylated
The substance is not flammable (no solid).
Burning rate, solid:
According to REACH legislation, Annex VII, column II flammability does
not need to be conducted since the substance is a liquid. Flammability
for liquids is expressed as flash point.
Contact with water:
The structural formula (see page 9) of the test item contains none of
the functional groups quoted in Manual of Tests and Criteria (fourth
revised edition, appendix 6, article 5.3) which may react with water to
emit flammable gases. Therefore, it can be concluded by expert judgement
that ‘Ethane-1,2-diol, propoxylated' does not emit flammable gases in
contact with water. The determination according to EU Method A.12
(Flammability (Contact with Water)) and UN Test N.5 (Flammability
(Contact with water)) is not necessary (Currenta, 2009).
Experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not
ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal
temperatures (i.e. the substance is known to be stable at room
temperature for prolonged periods of time) (Currenta, 2010).
Self-heating substances and mixtures:
The substance is a liquid. Liquids do not demonstrate self-heating
properties unless they are adsorbed on a large surface.
