Endpoint:
flammable solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
other:
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:
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 experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
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 completely molten at 160°C

Description of key information

not flammable on ignition

not pyrophoric

not flammable on contact with water

not self-heating

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Substance is not flammable, based on flashpoint > 200 ºC. Also, self-heating is not likely, since it is a solid with melting point < 160 ºC. Also, flammability on contact with water is not expected, based on chemical structure, handling, and experience. Finally substance is not pyrophoric based on chemical structure, handling, and experience.

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, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

Substance is not flammable, based on flashpoint > 200 ºC. Also, self-heating is not likely, since it is a solid with melting point is < 160 ºC. Also, flammability on contact with water is not expected, based on chemical structure, handling, and experience. Finally substance is not pyrophoric based on chemical structure, handling, and experience.
