Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Based on chemical structure and experience in handling and use, the substance has no pyrophoric properties and does not liberate flammable gases on contact with water. Although the substance is combustible, the liquid is very poorly flammable (flash point > 130 °C). As a liquid not absorbed on a large surface, it is not self-heating.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) of substances and mixtures, the substance is not considered to be a flammable liquid, because the flash point is more than 60 °C. The substance has no pyrophoric properties and does not liberate flammable gases on contact with water.
