Description of key information

non flammable on ignition

non flammable on contact with water

non pyrophoric

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

Based on the flash point (138 °C, closed cup) the substance is a non-flammable liquid.

Based on experience in handling and use and the chemical structure, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected. This is supported by expert statements from the laboratory performing tests of physico-chemical properties based on appropriate guidelines: the substance could be safely handled either in the air, or in the water (e.g. during the water solubility test).

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification: On the basis of the flash point, the substance is a non-flammable liquid. Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability in contact with water are not expected.
