Description of key information

The substance is stable and not corrosive to metals.

Additional information

The assessment is based on the ‘Guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria’ published by ECHA, chapter 2.15.3 ‘Classification of substances and mixtures as corrosive to metals’. UN Test method C.1 as described in the ‘Manual of Tests and Criteria’ (fourth revised edition, part III, sub-section 37.4) is applicable only to substances and mixtures in the liquid state. Therefore, the test criteria of metal corrosion do not apply. The substance exhibits a melting point of 106 °C (for details see chapter 4.2).

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance shows no chemical groups as in particular acidic hydrogen, that causes a corrosivity to metals and, thus, it can be excluded that the substance is corrosive to metals in the sense of the test guideline UN C.1 which is cited in GHS chapter 2.16.
