Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
tetramethylenediamine has a boiling point of 158°C -159°C.
The boiling point is one of the criteria used in assigning a substance to an appropriate flammability
category. Under GHS, substances are classified as Category 1 - extremely flammable liquid and
vapour if they have a flash point of <23ºC and boiling point <35ºC (e.g. diethyl ether, carbon
disulphide) and as Category 2 - highly flammable liquid and vapour if they have a flash point of
<23ºC and boiling point >35ºC (e.g. petrol, acetone).
The boiling point does not influence the classification of tetramethylene diamine.
Executive summary:

Tetramethylenediamine has a boiling point of 158°C -159°C.

The boiling point in combination with the flashpoint are the criteria for classification a liquid as flammable.

Tetramethylenediamine does not fullfill the criteria of a flammable liquid as described in the CLP directive table

Category 1, - extremely flammable liquid (flash point of <23ºC and boiling point <35ºC (e.g. diethyl ether, carbon

disulphide), as

Category 2 - highly flammable liquid and vapour if they have a flash point of

<23ºC and boiling point >35ºC (e.g. petrol, acetone).

The boiling point does not influence the classification of tetramethylene diamine.
