Description of key information

- The flammability upon ignition is not applicable
- no pyrophoric properties
- does not liberate flammable gases on contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

- The flammability of a liquid is derived from flash point and was determined to be 152°C.

- Based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties and the flammability in contact with water are not to be expected

Justification for classification or non-classification

- The flammability of a liquid is derived from flash point and was determined to be greater than 100°C.

- 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 evaluation of flash point for flammability of a liquid is based on the set criteria for C&L as outline in the Annex VI to Directive 67/548/EEC and in the UN-GHS, 5th revised edition, 2013 and in the Regulation (EC) No1272/2008 on CLP of substances and mixtures, version 4.0, 2013, respectively.

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 test substance should not be classified as a flammable material. Further justification: - The substance should not be classified as self-reactive substance as there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. - The substance should not be classified as self-reactive substance as the substance is a liquid.
