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
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

Description of key information

Data waiving: substance is liquid so flammability upon ignition is not applicable - study not technically feasible

Data waiving: substance has no pyrophoric properties - study not scientifically necessary

Data waiving: substance does not liberate flammable gases in contact with water - study not scientifically necessary


Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

- The flammability of a liquid is derived from flash point and was determined to be 122°C.

- Based on chemical structure and experience in handling and use of substance the pyrophoric properties and the flammability in contact with water are not to be expected.

- flammability upon ignition is not applicable

- no pyrophoric properties

- does not liberate flammable gases in contact with water.

Justification for classification or non-classification

- The flammability of a liquid is deduced from flash point and was determined to be greater than 100°C.

- Based on chemical structure and experience in handling and use of substance the pyrophoric properties and the flammability in contact with water are not to be expected.

The evaluation of flash point for flammability of a liquid is based on the set criteria for C&L as outline in the Annex VI to Directive 67/548/EEC and in the UN-GHS, 5th revised edition, 2013

The theoretical assessments of pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are based on section R.7.1.10 of Guidance chapter R.7a of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.

It can be concluded that the substance is not considered to be classified as a flammable material.
