Description of key information

In accordance with REACH Annex XI this study is scientifically unjustified. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of  diacetone alcohol does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the criteria for classification and labelling set out in Regulation (EC) NO. 1272/2008.

- If the acetone content >0.945% , the substance is classified for flammability

CLP: Flam liquid Cat3

- if the acetone content is approximatively 0.493% , the substance is classified for flammabilty

CLP: Flam Liquid Cat 3

- If the acetone content is approximatively 0.008% the substance is not classified for flammability
