Description of key information

Lithium bromide is non-flammable according to the conducted study. The chemical structure of lithium bromide does not contain chemical groups, which may lead to the conclusion that the test substance is capable of developing a dangerous amount of (flammable) gas in contact with water. Further, it can be concluded that lithium bromide is not pyrophoric (Ref.: R.7a: Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, EU-Document (2012). The experience in handling and use does not indicate flammability upon contact with water or pyrophoric properties. Therefore, no experimental determination of flammability was carried out. Further, lithium bromide does not meet the criteria for self-reactive substances and organic peroxides.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

A flammability study was performed with lithium bromide according to UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of tests and Criteria, N1: Test Method for readily combustible solids, sub-section 33.2.1.4. Based on this, lithium bromide is non-flammable. (FMC, 2012)

Justification for classification or non-classification

Lithium bromide is non-flammable according to the conducted study. Based on the structure of lithium bromide no pyrophoric properties and flammability upon contact with water could be detected. Further lithium bromide does not meet the criteria for self-reactive substances and organic peroxides.Taking into account the regulations in Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) and Regulation 1272/2008/EC (CLP) lithium bromide was not classified as flammable.
