Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
02-05-2012 - 04-05-2012
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Jeffcat ZR50
- Physical state: Liquid
- Batch: PFW100207
- Composition of test material, percentage of components: contains 0.03% water
- Storage conditions: in cool, well-ventilated area
Remarks on result:
no reaction with water observed

Test results - Initial Tests:

No gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed during any of the tests.

Test results - Final Test:

No gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed during any of the tests. The sample does not generate flammable gases in contact with water.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No gas generation or spontaneous ingitions were observed during any of the tests. The sample does not generate flammable gases in contact with water.
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
02-05-2012
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.13 (Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Jeffcat ZR50
- Physical state: Liquid
- Batch: PFW100207
- Composition of test material, percentage of components: contains 0.03% water
- Storage conditions: in cool, well-ventilated area
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state.
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)

As the first test was negative, the second test was also performed.

No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore not a pyrophoric liquid.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore not a pyrophoric liquid.
Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:

Description of key information

The test substance is concluded not to be pyrophoric, nor flammable in contact with water following GLP-compliant studies in accordance with EC test methods A.12 and A.13 (Younis S, 2012). In addition, the test substance does not need to be classified as flammable liquid as the flash-point was determined to be 132°C and is therefore outside the range relevant for classification according to the CLP regulation. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test substance does not need to be classified as flammable liquid as the flash-point was determined to be 132°C and is therefore outside the range relevant for classification and labelling under the CLP Regulation. Furthermore, the test substance is tested not to have pyrophoric properties nor to be flammable in contact with water.
