Description of key information

Flammability of solids: not flammable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The test item could not be ignited with a flame. The test item melted. The test item is not a highly flammable solid in the sense of Directive

67/548/EEC Annex V and Directive 92/69/EEC Method A.10.

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 substance is a solid with a melting point of 189.5°C and therefore not a gas at room temperature.

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, because the 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.

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 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 (circa 20°C). Furthermore, experience in handling shows that the substance does not ignite in contact with air.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test item does not need to be classified as flammable according to Directive 67/548 EEC and Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
