Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Not relevant, assessment bases on flash point

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

No experimental data from a flammability study are available. The flash point is the primary indicator for ease of ignition of liquids. Testing for flammability has been waived in accordance with Annex XI, 1.1.1 as an experiment is considered scientifically unjustified. No study is required and the submission item is considered non flammable on the basis of its flash-point > 200 °C at standard pressure (ISO 5011, i.e. 101.3 kPa) determined by Tremain & Atwal (2011, Harlan Report no. 41103264).

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances and mixtures, Annex I: 2.6.1. Flammable liquid means a liquid having a flashpoint of not more than 60 °C. Basically this is in agreement with Commission Directive 2001/59/EC of 6 August 2001, p L 225/269, but the limit is at 55 °C. The flashpoint of the submission item was determined according to the EU A.9 (Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008) to be 201.42 ± 2 °C. Therefore it is deemed not flammable and no classification according to CLP or DSD is required.
