no flammability on contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance hexanoic acid, methyl ester (CAS 106-70-7) is a 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.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and are therefore conclusive:

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

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