Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is not yet classified in the Annex I of Directive 67/548/EEC. According to the information summarized in this below, no classification on flammability is needed:

- As liquid, no flash point up to 249 °C;

- As liquid, boiling point is higher than 300 °C;

- No pyrophoric property, based on experience from production and handling;

- It does not ignite spontaneously with water and does not liberate flammable gases in hazardous amounts in contact with water.

Based on the data summarized above, the substance is also not flammable according to GHS (Regulation EC 1272/2008).
