Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
From the experimental values of flammability, ethyl 4,4,4-trifluoroacetoacetate ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 degC was brought in contact with it.
Executive summary:

From the experimental values of flammability, ethyl 4,4,4-trifluoroacetoacetate ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 degC was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that ethyl 4,4,4-trifluoroacetoacetate is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 degC. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, ethyl 4,4,4-trifluoroacetoacetate was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
