Description of key information

The flammability was not determined because the test subtance is liquid.

The flash point of dioctylfumarate is 200 °C (see section 4.11). Dioctylfumarate is therefore not flammable.

Flammability (contact with water, EU method A.12): The practical experience of the sponsor and the test facility shows that no gases are developed when the test substance is in contact with water. The test substance is therefore regarded as not being flammable in contact with water.

Pyrophoric properties (EU method A.13): The test was not performed experimentally because practical experience exists at the sponsor and the test facility, e.g. when handling small amounts of the test substance repeatedly in air during testing. The test substance is therefore regarded as not being pyrophoric.

non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash point of dioctylfumarate is 200 °C (see section 4.11). Dioctylfumarate is therefore not classified as flammable.

The test substance is regarded as not being flammable in contact with water.

The test substance is regarded as not being pyrophoric.
