Description of key information

Flammability:

The test substance pile was ignited for 2 minutes applying a flame as ignition source in the preliminary test. No propagation of combustion of the test item along 200 mm length of the pile within 4 minutes was observed.

Pyrophoric solids:

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.

Flammability in contact with water:

The study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.

Self-heating substances / mixtures:

Some endothermic and exothermic effects of the test item by self-heating were observed during the experiment. During this effect the test item reached a temperature of 188°C. Negative result obtained at 140°C using a 10 cm sample cube

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Flammable solids:

No propagation of combustion of the test item along 200 mm length of the pile within 4 minutes was observed.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 section 2.7.2.1, this substance should not be classified as flammable solids.

Pyrophoric solids:

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 section 2.10.4.1, the classification procedure for pyrophoric solids need not be applied when experience in manufacture or handling shows that the substance or mixture does not ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperatures (i.e. the substance is known to be stable at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days)). As experience show this substance does not ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperature, so the classification procedure for pyrophoric solids need not be applied for this substance.

Substances and mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases:

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 section 2.12.4.1(a), the classification procedure for this class need not be applied if the chemical structure of the substance or mixture does not contain metals or metalloids. As no metals or metalloids present in the molecule of this substance, so the classification procedure for this class need not be applied for this substance. 

Self-heating substances and mixtures:

Negative result obtained at 140°C using a 10 cm sample cube.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 section 2.11.2., this substance should not be classified as self-heating substances and mixtures.
