Description of key information

Flammability: non flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

In a guideline test according to EEC method A 10, it was determined that the test substance is not flammable as ignition with a hot platinum wire (ca. 1000 °C) resulted in melting of the substance but did not sustain a flame. From water solubility test it is known that the substance does not emit flammable gases in contact with water and experience in handling and use supports that the substance is non-pyrophoric. Thus, the substance is considered non-flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Due to lack of flammability the substance is not required to be classified for flammability according to CLP (Regulation EC No 1272/2008) or DSD (Directive 67/548/EEC). Experience in handling and use has shown that the substance is neither pyrophoric nor self-heating and does not react with water forming flammable gases. Thus, classification for these endpoints is not required.
