Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: GLP guideline study
according to guideline
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)

In contact with water the test item did not ignite spontaneously with water and did not liberate gases in hazardous amounts.

Interpretation of results:
other: - does not ignite spontaneously with water - does not liberate flammable gases in hazardous amounts
The test substance did not ignite spontaneously with water and did not liberate gases in hazardous amounts when tested according to EC Test Procedure A 12.

Description of key information

Flammability: The flammability of a substance is determined following the method N.1 (UN-manual of testing) or A.10 (EU-method). But in accordance with section 2 of REACH Annex XI, a study is technically not possible as the substance is a liquid. The flammability of a liquid is described by the flash point.

Contact with water: The substance does not liberate highly flammable gases in contact with water or humid air as determined by the EU-method A.12.

Pyrophoric properties: Pyrophoric properties are determined following the methods N.3 (UN-Manual of testing) or A.13 (EU-method). But in accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, a study does not need to be conducted as it is scientifically not necessary. During handling and use, no pyrophoric properties were observed and the structure does not give a reference to pyrophoric properties.

Self-heating properties: The study does not be conducted because the substance is a solid
