Description of key information

Highly flammable liquid.
The substance has no pyrophoric properties and does not liberate flammable gases on contact with water.

The substance is not a self-heating substance or mixture.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

Flammability derived from flash point and boilling point.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as pyrophoric as the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperaturefor prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.

The substance or mixture does not need to be classified as a substance which in contact with water emit flammable gases as the organic substance does not contain metalls or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The following classification criteria are met: F, R11 (highly flammable) of EU Directive 67/548/EEC: flash point <21 °C and initial boiling point >35 °C; Flammable liquids, Category 2 (highly flammable liquids and vapour) of EU CLP: flash point <23 °C and initial boiling point >35 °C
