Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

According to REACH guidance R7a, the flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity.

The molecular structure of the C14 -20 Aliphatics (≤ 2% aromatic) does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and the experience in handling and use of these substances indicate that this is the case.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Hydrocarbons, C13-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics

The minimum flash point being higher than 60°C, the substance is considered as non-flammable.

Hydrocarbons, C14-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics

The minimum flash point being higher than 60°C, the substance is considered as non-flammable.

Hydrocarbons, C14-C19, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics

The minimum flash point being higher than 60°C, the substance is considered as non-flammable.

Hydrocarbons, C16-C20, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics

The flash point is higher than 97°C, the substance is considered as non-flammable.
