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
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI testing does not appear scientifically necessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of the substance does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties.
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
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI testing does not appear scientifically necessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of the substance does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties.
Endpoint:
flammable solids
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

Description of key information

Flammability: Data waiving (study scientifically not necessary / other information available). Flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flash point (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of the substance does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties.

Pyrophoric properties: Data waiving (study scientifically not necessary / other information available). Practical experience in manufacture and handling shows that the substance does not ignite

spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperatures.

Flammability in contact with water: Data waiving (study scientifically not necessary / other information available): The substance is not classified as flammable in contact with water based on the chemical

structure and the experience in handling / use which shows that the substance does not react with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Flammability: In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI testing does not appear scientifically necessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of the substance does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties.

Pyrophoric properties: Data waiving (study scientifically not necessary / other information available).

Practical experience in manufacture and handling shows that the substance does not ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperatures.

Flammability in contact with water: Data waiving (study scientifically not necessary / other information

available): The substance is not classified as flammable in contact with water based on the chemical structure and the experience in handling / use which shows that the substance does not react with water.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on available data the flash point of the test item is 119.5 ºC. According to CLP criteria (Annex I, 2.6.2.3), liquids with a flash point >60ºC do not meet classification criteria.
