Description of key information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI testing does not appear scientifically necessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of the substance does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties. The flash point is reported to be 184 ºC. On the basis of this information and observations it can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that the substance is not flammable.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the substance is not expected to be flammable, classification is not needed according to EU Directive 67/548/EEC and EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
