Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Not flammable (study result, EU A.10 method). Waiving for pyrophoricity and flammability in contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Not classified according to test result for flammability (EU A.10 method).

Dibasic lead stearate does not exhibit pyrophoric properties, it is stable at ambient temperature. This substance also does not contain any chemical groups that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming in contact with air at room temperature (circa 20°C). Furthermore, long-term industrial experience in handling shows that the substance does not ignite in contact with air.

Dibasic lead stearate does not contain groups that might lead to a reaction with water or damp air, leading to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable. Furthermore, long-term industrial experience in practical handling of the substance shows that it does not react with water, and recent experimental testing for water solubility has also not reported any formation of gases.
