Description of key information

A flash point determination has been performed to fulfil the requirement for information on flammability of the substance. The flash point of the substance is 128 ± 2 °C at 101 kPa. Based on experience in use, the substance is not pyrophoric and does not emit flammable gases in contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

According to ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance (Version 4.1; October 2015), the primary value for ease of ignition in liquids is the flash point. The flash point of the test item was determined to be 128 ± 2 °C and this value was used for purposes of CLP classification (non-flammable). Since the test material does not ignite in contact with air or water, and the tested sample did not contain impurities with a lower boiling point than the main component, no further investigation of flammability is required.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash point of the test material has been determined to be 128 ± 2 °C at 101 kPa. In accordance with CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 the test material is not classified as flammable.
