Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

A.10: In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Annex XI a test according to A.10 (flammability; solid) is not considered to be required, since the substance is a liquid substance with a melting point of < -75 °C and a boiling range of 215.54 – 250.49 °C, and therefore not a solid at room temperature.

A.11: In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Annex XI a test according to A.11 (flammability; gases) is not considered to be required, since the test substance is a liquid substance with a freezing point of < -75 °C and a boilingrange of 215.54 – 250.49 °C , and therefore not a gas at room temperature.

A.12: In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Annex XI a test according to A.12 (flammability; contact with water) is not considered to be required, since the test substance does not contain groups that might lead to a reaction with water or damp air, leading to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable. Furthermore, experience in practical handling of the substance shows that it does not react with water, and recent experimental testing for water solubility has also not reported any formation of gases.

A.13: In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Annex XI a test according to A.13 (pyrophoric properties of solids and liquids) is not considered to be required, since the test substance is stable at ambient temperature. The substance does not contain any chemical group that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming in contact with air at room temperature (approx 20 °C). Furthermore, experience in handling shows that the substance does not ignite in contact with air.
