EC number: 950-156-7
CAS number: -
First, a safety test was performed. A
small amount of the test item was heated
on a magnesia groove with a gas burner in
order to derive safety precautions.
Melting to a yellowish liquid and then
evaporating was observed. In the
preliminary screening test following the
EU and UN method, the test item was heated
with the flame of a teclu burner. The test
item melted to a yellowish liquid. No
ignition occurred within two minutes.
After cooling down, the test item had
turned to a white wax like solid.
Therefore, the test item Bisamid should be
considered as not highly flammable (for EU
regulations) non-flammable solid (for UN
Extremely flammable (Meth A9/A2): N
Highly flammable: N
Pyrophoric substance (A13): N
Highly flammable solid (A10): N
In contact with water substance liberates highly flammable gases (A12): N
The flammability of 12-hydroxyoctadecanoic acid, reaction products with
1,3-benzenedimethanamine and hexamethylenediamine is assessed in a
guideline study according to EU Method A.10. No flammability is observed
for the substance.
The substance consists of multiple different constituents with
similar chemical structure:
are no experimental data on the multi-constituent substance available.
The individual constituents and mixtures of structurally similar
bisamides are considered suitable read-across substances. Experimental
results are provided from guideline studies for the read-across
substances 1,3-bis[12-hydroxy-octadecamide-N-methylene]-benzene and
12-hydroxyoctadecanoic acid, reaction products with
1,3-benzenedimethanamine and hexamethylenediamine. According to the
study records, neither tested read-across substance is considered highly
Since all constituents are structurally similar to each other, the
properties of the substance being registered regarding flammability are
expected to be comparable to the properties of the read-across
substances. Therefore, we conclude that the substance being registered
is not flammable. Further testing is not considered necessary.
