Description of key information

The flammability limits for glycerol are 2.7 % for the lower flammability limit and 19 % for the upper flammability limit at atmospheric pressure. The flash point of glycerol is 199 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

The flash point of glycerol is greater than 55 °C and the boiling point of glycerol is greater than 35 °C. Therefore no classification for flammability according to EU criteria is required.

Justification for classification or non-classification
