Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
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 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
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:

Specific details on test material used for the study:
Trade name: Ethylene glycol dibenzoate
IUPAC name: Ethane-1,2-diyl dibenzoate
EC number: 202-338-6
CAS number: 94-49-5
Batch number: 10000005282
Molecular formula: C16H14O4
Molecular weight: 270.28
Description: Flakes
Storage requirements: +20 ºC
Expiration date: 12/31/2021
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

In the screening test the gas flame was applied to one end of the substance strip. The substance melted and did not ignite within 2 minutes applying a flame on the test material. This result means that the substance is not considered as highly flammable according to EC A.10.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The test substance melted and did not ignite. This means that it is not considered as highly flammable according to EC Guideline A.10.
Executive summary:

The flammability of Ethylene glycol dibenzoate (EGDB) was determined according to EC Regulation No 440/2008, Guideline A.10 in accordance with European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.7a, Endpoint specific guidance, May 2008.

The test substance melted and did not ignite.

This means that the test substance is not considered as highly flammable according to EC Guideline A.10 and CLP.

Description of key information

The substance is not-flammable, not pyrophoric, does not react with water to emit flammable gases and is not self-heating
