Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Zinc dipropionate is non auto-flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH), annex VII, 7.12. a study on selfignition temperature does not need to be conducted, if “preliminary results exclude selfheating of the substance up to 400 °C”. This criterium is met, as zinc dipropionate decomposes above 240 °C and 400 °C are reached by external heating only. By differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), according to regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, A.1 and DIN 51004, and thermo gravimetry (TGA), according to DIN 51006, with heating up to and including 600°C and 1000 °C, respectively no self-heating was observed (see sections 4.2 Melting point and 4.3 Boiling point).
