Description of key information

Due to the chemical structure and extended experience in handling and use, the substance was considered to have no pyrophoric properties. 
According to the chemical structure and extended experience in handling and use, the substance was not considered to be flammable in contact with water.
The flash point of the substance as a liquid was tested following the Pensky-Martens method and revealed a flash point of 150.5 °C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flammability and the flammability in contact with water was assessed in a expert statement based on data obtained from GLP-studies. The substance was considered to have no pyrophoric properties and to be not flammable in contact with water.

After correction for the atmospheric pressure, the flash point of D-Panthenol was determined to be 150.5 °C at 99.4 kPa using the Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus.

 

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the flash point, the structure of the molecule and experience in handling and use, D-Panthenol was not classified as flammable according to Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) and Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP, GHS).
