Description of key information

B-TTEGME is not flammable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance May 2008, Section 7.1.10, page 120,states that "A flammable liquid is one with a flash point below the upper limit set in the classification and labelling criteria". The experimentally derived flash point of B-TTEGME is 144 °C. Based on this classification is not needed according to GHS (2009).

There is no structural alert that B-TTEGME may have pyrophoric properties or is highly flammable when in contact with water. Therefore, a separate test for flammability is not needed and the information obtained is reliable and relevant for non-classification.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance May 2008, Section 7.1.10, page 120,states that "A flammable liquid is one with a flash point below the upper limit set in the classification and labelling criteria". The experimentally derived flash point of B-TTEGME is 144 °C. Based on this classification is not needed according to GHS (2009) and CLP (2008).

There is no structural alert that B-TTEGME may have pyrophoric properties or is highly flammable when in contact with water.
