Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2011-07-13 - 2011-07-15
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
No further details on the test substance available
Key result
Remarks on result:
no reaction with water observed

Test results - Initial tests:

No gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed during any of the tests.

Test results - Final test:

No gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed during the test. The sample does not generate flammable gases in contact with water.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
No gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed during any of the tests. The sample does not generate flammable gases in contact with water.
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2011-07-12
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.13 (Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
No further details on the test substance available
Remarks on result:
other: no ignition or charring

As the first test was negative, the second test was also performed.

No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore not a pyrophoric liquid.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore not a pyrophoric liquid.
Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid

Description of key information

The test substance is concluded not to be pyrophoric, nor flammable in contact with water following GLP studies in accordance with EC test methods A.12 and A.13 (Younis, 2011). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flash point of the test substance was determined to be 135 °C at 101.9 kPa and is therefore outside the range relevant for classification and labelling under GHS (<55 °C) and CLP (<60 or <75 °C).

Furthermore, the test substance is concluded not to have pyrophoric properties nor to be flammable in contact with water.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash point of the test substance is outside of the range relevant for classification and labelling under GHS and CLP Regulation.
