Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

The substance is not expected to be flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information



Relevant literature sources and studies indicate that this substance has no flashpoint. However, under certain conditions the substance can form flammable vapour/air mixtures (lower explosive limit 7.9% Vol at 20 °C, Nabert 1963) which under normal circumstances are difficult to ignite (under optimum conditions of 26 % Vol in air at 20 °C the minimum energy needed for ignition is 510 mJ, which is many 1000 fold higher than for vapours of other common flammable solvents, Steen 2000). Classification as a flammable substance thus is not required.

Water reactivity and pyrophoricity are not expected based on the structural properties and experience in handling the substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the substance is not expected to be flammable, classification is not warranted according to EU Directive 67/584/EEC and EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008).
