Non flammable upon ignition
The substance has no pyrophoric properties and does not liberate flammable gases in contact with water.
The substance is not a self-heating substance or mixture.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The test item is not a highly flammable solid in the sense of UN Manual of Test and Criteria, Method N.1, nor a flammable liquid as derived from flash point.

Based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties and flammability in contact with water are not to be expected.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as self-heating as the substance is a solid with a melting point less than 160 °C, sometimes a sirupy liquid.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the classification and labeling criteria of GHS and 67/548/EEC a solid with a burning time < 45 seconds or a burning rate > 2.2 mm/s shall be classified as flammable solid.

Due to the results of the test the substance does not have to be classified as "flammable solid", class 4.1 of

the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods I Manual of Tests and Criteria and

according to chapter 2.7 of the GHS (CLP) regulations.

According to the classification and labeling criteria of EU CLP and 67/548/EEC a liquid with a flash point <= 60/55 °C shall be classified as flammable liquid. The substance is nor a flammable liquid.
