Administrative data

Description of key information

According to REGULATION (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP) there are no classification requirements for the submission substance with regard to physico-chemical properties.

According to UN-GHS rev. 7 (2017), the liquid substance is classified as flammable liquid category 4 based on flash point of 77 °C.

Relevant key information is given in the endpoint summaries on the respective properties.

For a summary and conclusion with regard to overall physical hazards and respective classification and labelling requirements, see below!

Additional information

A full set of physico-chemical information is available with many of the essential parameters determined according to established testing guidelines. Classification issues are discussed in the relevant endpoint summaries in more detail. Here, only a brief summary is given:

Because of a flash point 77°C, according to UN-GHS rev. 7 (2017) the liquid substance is classified as flammable liquid category 4 (Combustible liquid).

According to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP Regulation) there are no classification requirements with regard to flammable liquids.

Regarding corrosiveness to metals, from handling and use of the substance there are no indications for such property. According to the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, section 37.1.1 (rev. 6, 2015) testing is not necessary if a substance is corrosive to skin. This applies to the submission substance.

With regard to classification for self-reactiveness, according to CLP, Annex I, 2.8.4.2. "The classification procedures for self-reactive substances and mixtures need not be applied if:

(a) There are no chemical groups present in the molecule associated with explosive or self reactive properties. Examples of such groups are given in Tables A6.1 and A6.2 in Appendix 6 of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria;”

This applies for the submission substance.

According to (1), the phenomenon of self-heating applies only to solids. The surface of liquids is not large enough for reaction with air and the available test method is not applicable to liquids. Therefore liquids are not classified as self-heating. 

Overall, according to REGULATION (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP) there are no classification requirements for this substance. According to UN-GHS rev. 7 (2017) the substance is classified as flammable liquid category 4 (Combustible liquid). No other classification requirements with regard to physical hazards do exist.
