Description of key information

Not flammable (test result). Not auto-flammable (test for thermal stability). Not pyrophoric and not flammable in contact with water:
Testing of flammability in contact with water is not considered to be required, because the substance does not contain groups that might lead to a reaction with water or damp air, leading to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable. Furthermore, long-term industrial experience in practical handling of the substance shows that it does not react with water, and recent experimental testing for water solubility has also not reported any formation of gases (in accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI).

Justification for classification or non-classification

Not flammable (test result). Not auto-flammable (test result). Not pyrophoric and not flammable in contact with water:

Testing of flammability in contact with water is not considered to be required, because the substance does not contain groups that might lead to a reaction with water or damp air, leading to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable. Furthermore, long-term industrial experience in practical handling of the substance shows that it does not react with water, and recent experimental testing for water solubility has also not reported any formation of gases (in accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI). Thus, no classification for flammability is required.
