EC number: 949-219-1
CAS number: -
liquid; experimentally determined flash point > 60 °C at 101.325 kPa.
In accordance with section 1.2 of
REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 Annex XI the study of flammability
does not need to be completed based on weight of available evidence. The
substance has an experimentally determined flashpoint > 60 °C and
therefore under CLP Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 cannot be considered a
“flammable liquid”. Therefore testing for flammability is scientifically
For liquids the primary value for
ease of ignition is the flash point conducted using Method A9 ‘Flash
Point Method’ of Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008. The result of the
Flash Point test is used to allocate a liquid substance into the
appropriate flammability class. Other measures of flammability include
pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water. These can be
considered not a concern for the substance and testing waived if
consideration of the structure and experience in handling and use show
that no effects are envisaged. Such a screening procedure represents an
intelligent testing strategy for flammability. If applied correctly then
only liquid substances for which it is suspected will give a positive
result in either the pyrophoric properties or flammability on contact
with water tests need to be tested.
A review of the structure suggests
that there are no chemical groups present that would imply pyrophoric
properties or flammability on contact with water. A review of handling
and used implies no pyrophoric properties or flammability on contact
with water. Based on the absence of structural alerts and experience in
handling and use negative results are predicted for pyrophoric
properties and flammability of contact with water. Based on the known
Flash Point of the substance it is considered not to be flammable.
