EC number: 271-434-8 | CAS number: 68555-58-8
The test item is not a combustible liquid or a flammable liquid according to UN Test N.1.
The test item is a liquid at ambient conditions. This hazard class is only applicable for gases. Thus, the substance was not considered for classification as flammable gas.
The test item is a liquid at ambient conditions. This hazard class is only applicable for solids. Thus, the substance was not considered for classification as flammable solids.
The test item has a flash point of 142.5 °C according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9. Flash Point, DIN EN ISO 2719 (2003), see IUCLID Section 4.11.
In accordance with section 2.9.4 Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and ECHA guidance on the application of CLP Criteria section 18.104.22.168 the classification procedure for pyrophoric liquids need not to be applied when experience in manufacturing or handling shows that the substance or mixture does not ignite spontaneously when coming into contact with air at normal temperatures. Based on the experience in handling and use the substance is not known to ignite spontaneously when coming into contact with air at normal temperatures. Thus, no study was conducted.
The test item is a liquid at ambient conditions. This hazard class is only applicable for solids. Thus, the substance was not considered for classification as pyrophoric solids.
Self-heating substances and mixtures
In accordance with ECHA guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria section 22.214.171.124 and ECHA guidance on IR/CSA chapter R.7a section R126.96.36.199 the test does not to be conducted as in general liquids are not classified as self-heating since the phenomena applies only to solids and the test method is not applicable to liquids according to guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria section 188.8.131.52.
Substances which, in contact with water, emit flammable gases
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VI and with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 Annex I section 184.108.40.206 the classification procedure for this hazard class need not be applied if:
a) The chemical structure of the substance or mixture does not contain metals or metalloids; or
b) Experience in handling and use shows that the substance or mixture does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water; or
c) The substance or mixture is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture.
Based on the experience in handling and use the substance does not react with water and in addition the test substance is not pyrophoric. Thus, no study was conducted.
Section 2.4.2 of Guidance on the application on the CLP Criteria state as follows: “Aerosols, this means aerosol dispensers, are any non-refillable receptacles made of metal, glass or plastics and containing a gas compressed, liquefied or dissolved under pressure, with or without a liquid, paste or powder, and fitted with a release device allowing the contents to be ejected as solid or liquid particles in suspension in a gas, as a foam, paste or powder or in a liquid state or in a gaseous state." Thus, as the substance does not meet the definition for aerosol, the test for aerosols was waived. Consequently the substance has not to be considered for classification for this hazard class.
In conclusion, the substance does not have to be considered as flammable gas, flammable liquid, flammable solid, flammable in contact with water, flammable aerosol, pyrophoric solid, pyrophoric liquid or self-heating substance.
Classification, Labelling, and Packaging Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008
In accordance with Annex I Section 2.2, Section 2.3, Section 2.6, Section 2.9, Section 2.10 Section, 2.11 and Section 2.12 of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, as amended for tenth time in Regulation (EC) No. 2017/776, and UN GHS Rev 6 (2015) the test item has not to be classified as flammable liquid, self-heating substance in Class 4 Division 4.2, substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases in Class 4 Division 4.3, pyrophoric liquid, pyrophoric solid in class 4 Division 4.2, flammable gases in class 2 or as aerosol in class 2.
GHS (CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008: Annex 1: 2.7): The product has not to be classified as flammable liquid according to GHS / CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 Annex 1: 2.7.
