EC number: 242-745-6
CAS number: 19009-56-4
Flammability: non-flammable 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 unjustified.
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.
