Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture
Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
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
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Study period:
2013-03-19
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Version / remarks:
2008
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
2 s
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

On contact with the flame barium oleate ignites, but combustion stops within two seconds.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
Barium oleate is not highly flammable, no further testing is required.

Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

The substance ignites on contact with the flame, but takes more than 10 minutes to propagate combustion with flame along 200 mm of the powder train. While burning, the substance melts and the molten substance stops combustion immediately.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
Zinc versatate is not highly flammable, no further testing required

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Flammability solids

A test on the flammability according to EC method A.10. was recently conducted for two solid substances (within the MCRC substance portfolio) representing (i) one metal carboxylates with the highest hydro-carbon content and a cation in the highest oxidation state (Zn 2+): fatty acids, C9-13-neo zinc salts (CAS: 92044-84-3) (85 % hydro-carbon content) (ii) one metal carboxylate with a lower hydro-carbon content and a cation in the highest oxidation state (Ba 2+): fatty acids, C14-18+C16-18, unsatd, barium salts (CAS: 95465-85-3) (82 % hydro-carbon content). Both tests yielded a result of “not flammable”. Since fatty acids, C9-13-neo-, potassium salts is also an inorganic metal carboxylate containing the metal cation in the highest oxidised status and an anion of an acid which is less susceptible to any form of oxidation than fatty acids, C9-13-neo zinc salts (i.e. a lower hydro-carbon content of 84.5 %), fatty acids, C9-13-neo-, potassium salts is thus intrinsically less combustible than the two tested substances. Further testing is not required in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI, Section 1.1.1. A classification as flammable solid is not warranted.

Pyrophoric properties

According toRegulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI, Section 1, the study does not need to be conducted because fatty acids, C9-13-neo-, potassium salts 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.

Flammability in contact with water

According toRegulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI, Section 1, the study does not need to be conducted because fatty acids, C9-13-neo-, potassium salts is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture. The water solubility of fatty acids, C9-13-neo-, potassium salts was calculated as 43.669 ± 0.2 g/L at 20 °C.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Fatty acids, C9-13 neo, potassium salts does not need to be classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 since it is not highly flammable.
