Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Materials and methods

Test guideline
equivalent or similar to guideline
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Principles of method if other than guideline:
- In an Erlenmeyer flask, add 25 mL of sample;
- Pour water into the dropping funnel;
- Connect the Erlenmeyer flask with a hose that is immersed in a water solution (make sure that the connection connecting the tube to the Erlenmeyer flask is tight);
- Open the valve of the bulb, and observe over time the level of the liquid in the pipe immersed in the beaker. Gaseous evolution caused by the addition of water to the sample would lead to a decrease in the liquid height and then bubbling;
- In the event of gas evolution, we will continue the handling according to the recommendations of the standard NF T20-040. This standard specifies a method for determining the flammability of gases released after hydrolysis of solid or liquid chemicals.

Results and discussion

Substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Test procedure:
step 1
Max. rate of gas release:
0 L/kg min
Identity of evolved gas:
not applicable as no gas evolved
Remarks on result:
no reaction with water observed

Any other information on results incl. tables

By adding 500 mL of water in the same 50 mL sample, no gas was observed. In addition, we do not observe a rise in temperature. We therefore conclude that the substance is not flammable on contact with water.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Executive summary:

The flammability study was performed according to the A.6 EU method.

The test substance is not flammable
