non flammable

Additional information

In accordance with Section 1 of Annex XI of the Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 (REACH), it is considered justified to omit the flammability (solids or gases) study (required under point 7.10 of Annex VII) as it is not scientifically necessary. Due to the substance being a low melting point solid, it is considered more appropriate to evaluate the flash point.

Furthermore, experience of use determines that it is not scientifically justified to conduct either the flammability (contact with water) study or the pyrophoric properties of solids and liquids study (both further required in Section 7.10) as there is no evidence of the test material either spontaneously igniting in air at room temperature or exhibiting flammable properties in contact with water.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex I, Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, the test material does not require classification for flammability.
