Description of key information

Based on theclassification criteria for EU substance is non-flamable.
The substance has no pyrophoric properties and does not liberate flammable gases in contact with water.
The substance is not a self-reactive substance or mixture.
The substance is not a self-heating substance or mixture.
The substance is not an organic peroxide.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Flammability derived from flash point (and boilling point)

Based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties and flammability in contact with water are not to be expected.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as self-reactive as the heat of decomposition is less than 300 J/g.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as self-heating as the substance is a liquid.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as an organic peroxide as by definition based on their chemical structure the substance is no organic peroxide.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The following classification criteria are met: 

No Catagory of EU Directive 67/548/EEC: flash p oint > 55 °C; 

No Category of EU CLP: flash point > 60 °C 

Category 4 (flammable liquids and vapour) of UN GHS: flash point >= 60 °C and <= 93 °C
