Description of key information

- non flammable upon ignition
- no pyrophoric properties
- does not liberate flammable gases on contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

- Upon ignition the test substance melted and a brown melt resulted. It was also observed, that the test substance emitted some sparks and grey smoke at the beginning. The test substance could not be ignited with a flame during the preliminary test

- Based on chemical structure and experience in handling and use of substance the pyrophoric properties and the flammability in contact with water are not to be expected.

Justification for classification or non-classification

- Upon ignition the test substance melted and a brown melt resulted. It was also observed, that the test substance emitted some sparks and grey smoke at the beginning. The test substance could not be ignited with a flame during the preliminary test

- Based on chemical structure and experience in handling and use of substance the pyrophoric properties and the flammability in contact with water are not to be expected.

The theoretical assessments of pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are based on section R.7.1.10 of Guidance chapter R.7a of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.

It can be concluded that the substance is not considered to be classified as a flammable material
