Description of key information

non flammable
no pyrophoricity
no flammability on contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to EC 1907/2006 Annex XI only the flammability of liquids is deduced from the flash point. For this solid substance a flash point was determined because the substance melts at relative low temperatures. Therefore the flammability in this case could be deduced from the flash point.

Flash point: >200 °C (open cup)

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance Fatty acids, C16 -18 and C18 -unsatd., hexaesters with dipentaerythritol (CAS 68604 -38 -6) is a non flammable solid.

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