Description of key information

A flash point determination has been performed to fulfil the requirement for information on flammability of the substance. The flash point of the substance is 119 ± 2 °C at 101 kPa. Based on experience in use, the substance is not pyrophoric and does not emit flammable gases in contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance (Version 3.0; August 2014), the primary value for ease of ignition in liquids is the flash point. The flash point of the test item was determined to be 119 ± 2 °C and this value was used for purposes of CLP classification (non-flammable). Since the test material does not ignite in contact with air or water, and the tested sample did not contain impurities with a lower boiling point than the main component, no further investigation of flammability is required.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash point of the test material has been determined to be 119 ± 2 °C at 101 kPa. In accordance with CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 the test material is not classified as flammable.
