Description of key information

- The substance has a high flashpoint (144°C) and a boiling point of 318°C not indicating flammability.

- As the substance does not contain metals or metalloids and as experience in handling and use shows that the substance or mixture does not react with water, the substance does not emit flammable gases when in contact with water.

- The substance is not considered to be a self-heating substance as the substance is a liquid and the surface of liquids is not large enough for reaction with air.

- The substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, is does not have pyrophoric properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the flashpoint of 144°C and the boiling point of 318°C as well as its structural features the substance does not need to be classified as flammable, pyrophoric, self-heating, and emitting flammable gases when in contact with water according to the EU CLP (EC No. 1272/2008 and its amendments).
