Description of key information

Based on the flash point, structure considerations and practical experiences, it has been concluded that the test substance is non-flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash point of Methyl cyclohexylacetate is >81°C, which is above the upper limit of 60°C set in the classification and labelling criteria of the CLP regulation.

Methyl cyclohexylacetate does not contain any chemical group that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming into contact with air, damp air or water at room temperature (circa 20°C). Furthermore, no metals, transition metals, boron or silicon are present.

Based on structural considerations (absence of structural alerts) and practical experience over decades, it can be concluded that the test substance is incapable of developing a dangerous amount of (flammable) gas in contact with air, damp air or water.
