Description of key information

Captan is not flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

The reported data for non-flammability of the tested substance is taken from peer reviewed EFSA report.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The classification of the test substance is harmonized within the EU according to EU regulation No 1272/2008. Captan is not classified as being flammable. According to additional study results on explosiveness and auto flammability no physical properties leading to classification are measured.
