Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
other:
Justification for type of information:
The substance is a liquid under standard conditions (IUCLID section 4.1, CSR section 1.4) with a low vapour pressure of 0.17 Pa at 20 °C (see IUCLID section 4.6, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable gas.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information
Endpoint:
flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Justification for type of information:
The substance is a liquid under standard conditions (IUCLID section 4.1, CSR section 1.4) with a low vapour pressure of 0.17 Pa at 20 °C (see IUCLID section 4.6, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable gas.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Justification for type of information:
The substance is a liquid under standard conditions with a freezing point of <-50 °C (see IUCLID section 4.2, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable solid.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information

Description of key information

In accordance with annex XI of REACH flammability (solids) is not technically possible for this liquid substance.

In accordance with annex XI of REACH flammability (gases) is not technically possible for this liquid substance.

In accordance with annex XI of REACH flammability (contact with air and water) is not necessary based on experience from safe handling and use.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Testing for this endpoint has been waived because the studies are scientifically unjustified. The substance is a liquid and the key value for flammability of liquids is the flash point.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Annex I, section 2.6, "Flammable liquid means a liquid having a flash point of not more than 60 °C". The flash point (IUCLID section 4.11 , CSR section 1.4), 153°C, is higher than this value and so the substance should not be classified as a flammable liquid. The substance is a liquid under standard conditions (IUCLID section 4.1, CSR section 1.4) with a freezing point of < -50 °C (see IUCLID section 4.2, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable solid, and with a low vapour pressure of 0.17 Pa at 20 °C (see IUCLID section 4.6, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable gas.
