Additional information

Citric acid and its monosodium, tripotassium and tricalcium salts have been found to be non-flammable (burning index = 2/3) in screening tests conducted according to appropriate national standard methods. On the basis of read-across within the category, trimagnesium dicitrate is also considered to be non-flammable.

On the basis of experience in handling and use, the substance is not flammable in contact with air or water.
