Description of key information

Flammable gases (including chemically unstable gases)

Further consideration is not required because the substance is a solid.

 

Flammable solids

The substance is a waxy solid with a determined melting temperature of 29 to 60 °C (302 to 333 K) and, for that reason, a flash point determination was performed to fulfil the requirement for information on flammability of the substance and provide adequate data for purposes of classification and labelling.

Pyrophoric liquids

 The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a solid.

 

Pyrophoric solids

 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.

Self-heating substances

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.

 

Substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

According to ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance (Version 6.0; July 2017), the primary value for ease of ignition in liquids is the flash point. The substance has been shown to have no flashpoint below 300 °C and is non-flammable when compared to CLP classification criteria. 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 low melting point test material has been determined to have no flashpoint below 300 °C and, in accordance with CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, the substance is not classified as flammable.
