Description of key information

Flammability assessment as described in EU methods A10-A11 does not apply to liquids. Also study for flammability if in contact with water is deemed unnecessary based on the composition of the substance and its high water content, 65% or 90 -92%, and based on the experience in handling and use. Pyrophoric properties are not expected either. No reaction or accident has been reported to our knowledge, so the substance should present low potential for such dangerous properties.

Additional information

Flammability assessment as described in EU methods A10-A11 does not apply to liquids

Also study for flammability if contact with water is deemed unnecessary based on the composition of the substance and its high water content, 65% or 90 -92%, and based on the experience in handling and use. Pyrophoric properties are not expected either, despite the chemical structure can be included in the organometallics family, it does not fall into alkyl metals critical category. However, the quite similar substance iron (III) maleate may be pyrophoric, according to Bretherick’s Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards (6th edition); therefore, it will be recommended to avoid evaporation to dryness (not anticipated according to use process) as a conservative risk management measure.

No reaction nor accident has been reported to our knowledge, so the substance should present low potential for such dangerous properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information classification is not warranted. A study for flammability if in contact with water is deemed unnecessary based on the composition of the substance and its high water content, 65% or 90 -92%, and based on the experience in handling and use.
