not flammable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

For liquids the primary value for ease of ignition is the flash point conducted using Method A9 ‘Flash Point Method’ of Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008. The result of the Flash Point test in combination with its boiling point is used to allocate a liquid substance into the appropriate flammability class. The flashpoint is determined in iuclid section 4.11 to be 112.5 °C and the boiling point in iuclid section 4.3 to be not determined due decomposition above 320 °C. Therefore, the substance is not sufficient for classification as flammable. In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI any further testing does not appear scientifically necessary.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Within the CLP Regulation ‘Flammable liquid’ means a liquid having a flashpoint of not more than 60°C (see CLP Annex I, section 2.6.1). The flashpoint is determined in iuclid section 4.11 to be 112.5 °C and the boiling point in iuclid section 4.3 to be not determined due decomposition above 320 °C.

Therefore, the substance is not sufficient for classification as flammable.
