Endpoint:
flammable gases
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a solid
Endpoint:

Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a solid
Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is completely molten at 160°C
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water

Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

Tert-Butyl-4-methoxy-4'-dibenzoylmethane could not be ignited with a flame during the preliminary test. In contact with the ignition source Tert-Butyl-4-methoxy-4'-dibenzoylmethane melted immediately while emitting sparks in the beginning

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Tert-Butyl-4-methoxy-4'-dibenzoylmethane could not be ignited with a flame. Based on the results of this study, Tert-Butyl-4-methoxy-4'-dibenzoylmethane would not be considered as "highly flammable" according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP), as amended for the fourteenth time in Regulation (EU) 2020/217, and UN GHS Rev 8 (2019).
Executive summary:

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the flammability of Tert-Butyl-4-methoxy-4'- dibenzoylmethane. EU Method A10 (Flammability of solids) was applied. Tert-Butyl-4-methoxy-4'-dibenzoylmethane could not be ignited with a flame during the preliminary test (contact time of about 2 minutes). Therefore, no main test was performed. Based on the results of this study, Tert-Butyl-4-methoxy-4'-dibenzoylmethane would not be considered as "highly flammable" according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP), as amended for the fourteenth time in Regulation (EU) 2020/217, and UN GHS Rev 8 (2019).

Description of key information

The substance has not to be classified as flammable gas, flammable liquid, flammable solid, flammable in contact with water, flammable aerosol, pyrophoric solid, pyrophoric liquid or self-heating substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Flammable gases

The test item is a solid at ambient conditions. This hazard class is only applicable for gases. Thus, the substance was not considered for classification as flammable gas.

 

Flammable liquid

The test item is a solid at ambient conditions. This hazard class is only applicable for liquids. Thus, the substance was not considered for classification as flammable liquid.

 

Flammable solids

A study was conducted according to Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, method A.10 to investigate the flammability of the solid test item. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the flammability of the test item. The test item could not be ignited with a flame during the preliminary test (contact time of about 2 minutes). Therefore, no main test was performed. Based on the results of this study, the test item has not be considered as "highly flammable" according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP), as amended for the fourteenth time in Regulation (EU) 2020/217, and UN GHS Rev 8 (2019).

 

 

Pyrophoric liquids

The test item is a solid at ambient conditions. This hazard class is only applicable for liquids. Thus, the substance was not considered for classification as flammable liquid.

 

Pyrophoric solids

In accordance with section 2.10.4 Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and ECHA guidance on the application of CLP Criteria section 2.10.4.1 the classification procedure for pyrophoric solids need not to be applied when experience in manufacture or handling shows that the solid does not ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperatures (i.e. the solid is known to be stable at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days)). Based on the experience in handling and use the substance is not known to ignite spontaneously when coming into contact with air at normal temperatures. Thus, no study was conducted and the substance was not considered for classification as pyrophoric solid.

 

Self-heating substances and mixtures

In accordance with column 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Annex VII and ECHA guidance IR/CSA chapter R7.A the UN Test method N.4 for self-heating substances and mixtures do not need to be conducted if the melting point is < 160 °C. Thus, no study was conducted and the substance was not considered for classification.

 

Substances which, in contact with water, emit flammable gases

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VI and with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 Annex I section 2.12.4 and ECHA guidance on the application of CLP Criteria section 2.12.4.2 the classification procedure for this hazard class need not to be applied. Based on the experience in handling and use the substance does not react with water and in addition the test substance is not pyrophoric. Thus, no study was conducted and the substance was not considered for classification.

 

Flammable Aerosols

Section 2.4.2 of Guidance on the application on the CLP Criteria state as follows: “Aerosols, this means aerosol dispensers, are any non-refillable receptacles made of metal, glass or plastics and containing a gas compressed, liquefied or dissolved under pressure, with or without a liquid, paste or powder, and fitted with a release device allowing the contents to be ejected as solid or liquid particles in suspension in a gas, as a foam, paste or powder or in a liquid state or in a gaseous state." Thus, as the substance does not meet the definition for aerosol, the test for aerosols was waived. Consequently the substance has not to be considered for classification for this hazard class.

 

In conclusion, the substance have not to be considered as flammable gas, flammable liquid, flammable solid, flammable in contact with water, flammable aerosol, pyrophoric solid, pyrophoric liquid or self-heating substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Annex I Section 2.2, Section 2.3, Section 2.7, Section 2.9, Section 2.10 Section 2.11, Section 2.12 of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, as amended for fourteenth time in Regulation (EC) 2020/217, and UN GHS Rev 8 (2019) the test item has not to be classified as, readily combustible solid in class 4 Division 4.1, flammable liquid, self-heating substance in Class 4 Division 4.2, substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases in Class 4 Division 4.3, pyrophoric liquid, pyrophoric solid in class 4 Division 4.2, flammable gases in class 2 or as aerosol in class 2.
