Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, Annex A.10 the test substance is not considered highly flammable.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as pyrophoric as based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties are not to be expected.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as a substance which in contact with water emit flammable gases as based on chemical structure flammability in contact with water is not to be expected.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as self-heating as the substance is as the substance is completely molten at 160 °C.

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 an organic peroxide as by definition based on their chemical structure the substance is no organic peroxide.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Annex I, Section 2.1, Section 2.2, Section 2.3, Section 2.7, Section 2.9, Section 2.10 Section 2.11, Section 2.12 of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and UN GHS Rev 6 (2015) the substance has not to be classified as readily combustible solid in class 4 Division 4.1, self-heating substance in Class 4 Division 4.2, substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases in Class 4 Division 4.3, pyrophoric liquid, pyrophoric solid in class 4 Division 4.2, flammable gases in class 2 or as aerosol in class 2.
