Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit 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 experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
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
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
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 known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid

Description of key information

Non flammable

No pyrophoricity

No flammability on contact with water

Not self-heating

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance is a non flammable liquid.

Based on experience in handling and use and the chemical structure, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected.

The substance is a liquid, and as such, does not show self-heating behaviour if it is not absorbed on a large surface.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance is a non flammable liquid.

Based on experience in handling and use and the chemical structure, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected.

The substance is a liquid, and as such, does not show self-heating behaviour if it is not absorbed on a large surface.
