Description of key information

The acetate salt is less flammable then the amine, which is tested.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

In the screening test Tallow dipropylene triamine(C12-18diproplyene triamine)was tested. The gas flame was applied for 2 minutes to one end of the substance train, but no ignition and no propagation of combustion occurred. Only melting took place where the substance was exposed to the flame. Therefore the substance is not considered as highly flammable and no further testing is required. Given that the test substance has a more saturated carbon chain distribution and the acetate form is considered to have a higher flammability temperature the read across can be considered as a worst case scenario.

 

Flammability in contact with water

The chemical structure of (Z)-N-(3-aminopropyl)-N'-9-octadecenylpropane-1,3-diamine acetate does not contain chemical groups, capable of causing the development of a dangerous amount of (flammable) gas (e.g.hydrogen), when in contact with damp air or water. In addition, from experience in handling and use no flammability in contact in water is expected, as the substance is marketed in aqueous solutions. Therefore, the test substance is not considered highly flammable in contact with water.

Flammability (pyrophoric properties)

From the structural formula of (Z)-N-(3-aminopropyl)-N'-9-octadecenylpropane-1,3-diamine acetateit can be concluded that the substance is not pyrophoric. (Z)-N-(3-aminopropyl)-N'-9-octadecenylpropane-1,3-diamine acetatedoes not contain any chemical group that might lead to spontaneous ignition shortly after coming into contact with air at room temperature. In addition, from experience in handling and use no ignition in contact with air is expected.
