Description of key information

- non flammable upon ignition
- no pyrophoric properties
- does not liberate flammable gases on contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

- In contact with the ignition source, test item melted immediately. During the melting process spraying of sparks was observed. Most of the substance evaporated and a dark brown residue remains.

- Based on chemical structure and experience in handling and use of substance the pyrophoric properties and the flammability in contact with water are not to be expected

Justification for classification or non-classification

- Upon ignition the substance melted immediately and could not be ignited

- Based on chemical structure and experience in handling and use of substance the pyrophoric properties and the flammability in contact with water are not to be expected.

The theoretical assessments of pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are based on section R.7.1.10 of Guidance chapter R.7a of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.

It can be concluded that the substance is not to be classified as flammable material
