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:
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted. Based on experience on handling and use, the substance is stable and does not spontaneously ignite when exposed to air.
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:
The experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water.

Description of key information

Flammability in contact with water: Data waiving (study scientifically unjustified): The test substance in contact with water does not develop any gas at all. Therefore also no highly flammable gases in dangerous quantities at minimum rate of 1 liter/kg are evolved. The test substance is therefore regarded as not flammable in contact with water.

Pyrophoric properties: Data waiving (study scientifically unjustified): Based on experience on handling and use, the substance is stable and does not spontaneously ignite when exposed to air.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Pyrophoric properties: Data waiving (study scientifically unjustified): Based on experience on handling and use, the substance is stable and does not spontaneously ignite when exposed to air.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information, the substance is determined to be non-flammable in accordance with CLP Regulation (EC) no. 1272/2008.
