Description of key information

For liquids, the primary value for ease of ignition is the flash point conducted in line with EU Method A.9. 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 substance structure and experience in handling 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. In conclusion based on the known flash point of the substance it is considered not to be flammable. 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.
