Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The substance betaines, C12-14 (even numbered)-alkyldimethyl was determined non-flammable as a result of the preliminary test in accordance with the EU Method A.10. No gas generations or spontaneous ignitions were observed in any of the test investigating flammability on contact with water, according to EU Method A.12. No pyrophoric properties were determined in the test according to EU Method A.13.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

Only a weak propagation of burning determined in a test according to EU Method A.10.

No flammability on contact in water determined in a test according to EU Method A.12.

No pyrophoricity determined in a test according to EU Method A.13.
