Description of key information

In a GLP-compliant study performed in accordance with EC A.10, the substance has been determined to be 'not highly flammable' by ignition. 
The substance components lack structural alerts for pyrophoricity and for flammability in contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The UN MTC N.1 flammability test is essentially the same as the EC A.10 test in case no (propagation of) combustion occurs in the preliminary EC A.10 test. In such a case the EC A.10 test result can be used for CLP classification.

 

Experience in handling (e.g. in the water solubility and flammability tests) showed that the substance does not react with water nor ignite spontaneously when coming into contact with air at normal temperatures.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Justification for non-classification according to CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008:

-Because not flammable by ignition, no classification is required for the hazard 'Flammable solid'.

-No classification is required for the hazard 'Pyrophoric solids' based on the available information.

-Based on the available information, no classification is required for the hazard 'Substances which in contact with water emits flammable gases'.

-Because no UN Test N.4 is available, classification for self-heating is not possible.
