Description of key information

Flammability: non-flammable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

not classified

Additional information

The flammability of a substance such as icosan-1-ol (low melting point solid) can be assessed on the basis of flash point.

There is no indication on the basis of structure and experience in handling and use that the substance is pyrophoric (flammable in contact with air) or flammable in contact with water.

Therefore, in accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI, there is no need to conduct further flammability testing

Justification for classification or non-classification

Icosan-1-ol is not classified for flammability according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008. This is on the basis of a measured flash point of 176°C.
