Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Type of information:
other: Expert statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
08 May 2003
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Statement prepared under GLP conditions
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Version / remarks:
Statement
GLP compliance:
yes
Key result
Test procedure:
other: Based on chemical identity, experience in handling and water solubility
Remarks on result:
no reaction with water observed

Based on the theoretical assessment and experience in handling, it is concluded that the substance is incapable of developing dangerous amounts of (flammable) gas when coming into contact with water.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The substance is concluded not to be flammable in contact with water as based on the chemical structure and handling of the substance any reaction with water is not expected nor observed.
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Type of information:
other: Expert statement

GLP compliance:
yes
Specific details on test material used for the study:
No further data
Key result
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks on result:
not measured/tested
Remarks:
expert statement
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The substance is concluded not to be flammable in contact with air as based on the chemical structure no pyrophoric properties are expected. Experience in handling confirms that the substance does not ignite coming into contact with air.
Endpoint:
flammable solids
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 a liquid

Description of key information

The substance was concluded not to be flammable following a theoretical assessment in a GLP study according to test method EC A.12 (statement) and A.13 (statement) (Van der Baan-Treur, 2003). The conclusion from the theoretical assessment is confirmed by experience from handling the substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Based on the theoretical assessment and experience in handling it is concluded that the substance is incapable of developing dangerous amounts of (flammable) gas when coming into contact with water.

The substance is concluded not to be flammable in contact with air as based on the chemical structure no pyrophoric properties are expected. Experience in handling confirms that the substance does not ignite coming into contact with air.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash-point of the substance was determined to be 126 °C at 101 325 Pa and is therefore outside the range relevant for classification and labelling under CLP (<60 or <75 °C).

Furthermore, the substance is concluded not to have pyrophoric properties or to be flammable in contact with water, both based on a theoretical assessment and on experience from handling the substance.
