Description of key information

The flammability of a substance is determined following the methods N.1 (UN-manual of testing) or A.10 (EU-method). However, in accordance with section 2 of REACH Annex XI, a study is technically not feasible as the substance is a liquid. The flammability of a liquid is described by the flash point.
Pyrophoric properties are determined following the methods N.3 (UN-Manual of testing) or A.13 (EU-method). However, in accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, a study does not need to be conducted as it is scientifically unjustified. Based on experience during handling and use, no pyrophoric properties were observed and the structure does not give a reference to pyrophoric properties
The flammability of a substance on contact with water is determined following the methods N.5 (UN-Manual of testing) or A.12 (EU-method). However, in accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, a study does not need to be conducted as it is scientifically unjustified. Based on experience during handling and use, the substance does not liberate highly flammable gases on contact with water or humid air.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the substance is a liquid, its flammability is determined by its flash point. Having a flash point of 177 °C, the substance does not need to be classified as flammable.

Based on experience during handling and use, the substance does not need to be classified as flammable on contact with water.

Based on experience during handling and use, the substance does not need to be classified as a pyrophoric liquid.
