Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Flammable solids: Not classified according to test result for flammability (EU Method A.10).

Pyrophoricity - waiver: Fatty acids, C16 -C18, lead salt does not exhibit pyrophoric properties, it is stable at ambient temperature. This substance also does not contain any chemical groups that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming in contact with air at room temperature (circa 20°C) . Furthermore, long-term industrial experience in handling shows that the substance does not ignite in contact with air, and there was no ignition on contact with air when the substance was tested for flammability (EU Method A.10).

Flammability in contact with air - waiver: Long-term industrial experience in practical handling of the substance shows that it does not react with water, and experimental testing for water solubility has also not reported any formation of gases. Furthermore, fatty acids, C16 -C18, lead salt 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.
