Description of key information

The test item is not a highly flammable solid. (EU method A.10., Burning rate preliminary screening test).

No pyrophoricity.

No flammability on contact with water.

Not self-heating (OECD 102, DSC).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

The flammability of the substance was determined according to EU Method A.10. Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected . The substance is not self-heating based on DSC results.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification: No propagation of burning in a test according to EU Method A.10. Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected. Substance decomposes below 140 °C and DSC results exclude self-heating of the substance up to 400 °C.
