Description of key information

The substance is not flammable. It neither possess pyrophoric properties nor is water reactive. It shows not self-reactive or self-heating behaviour. The substance is no organic peroxide.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flammability of the substance is in a guideline study following the quality management system of GLP. No or only minor deviations could be detected during determination. The result could therefore be considered as valid and is chosen as key value for the chemical safety assessment.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the pyrophoric properties study does not need to be conducted as based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties are not to be expected.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the water reactivity study does not need to be conducted as based on chemical structure water reactivity is not to be expected.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the UN test series A to H for self-reactive substances and mixtures does not need to be conducted as there are no chemical groups present in the molecule associated with explosive or self reactive properties.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the UN test N 4 for self-heating substances and mixtures does not need to be conducted as the substance is a solid with a melting point less than 160 °C.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the UN test series A to H for organic peroxides does not need to be conducted as by definition based on their chemical structure the substance is no organic peroxide.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Since flammable properties of the substance could be excluded on the basis of testing or its chemical structure there is no need to classify the substance as flammable either according to directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) or regulation EC/1272/2008 (CLP).
