DEIPA is not highly flammable when in contact with air at room temperature or when in contact with water
According to an
expert regulatory report, DEIPA is stable in air in the absence of
moisture and is "Not expected to be flammable due to [its] low vapour
pressure” (NICNAS, 2009). Furthermore, industry experience (manufacture
and use) and the available studies conducted to date, including
auto-flammability and toxicity testing in laboratory animals (by oral,
dermal and inhalation routes) demonstrates that DEIPA does not
spontaneously ignite after coming into contact with air at room
hygroscopic and fully soluble in water (NICNAS, 2009). Industry
experience (manufacture and use) and the available studies conducted to
date, including water solubility, acute aquatic toxicity testing and
toxicity testing in laboratory animals (by oral, dermal and inhalation
routes) demonstrates that DEIPA does not spontaneously ignite after
coming into contact with water.
evaluation of its structural features, DEIPA does not contain any
chemical groups that might lead to spontaneous ignition shortly after
coming into contact with air (pyrophoric) or water (flammability), or to
evolve flammable gases. No metals, transition metals, boron or silicon
are present in DEIPA. Moreover, the flash point of DEIPA was measured at
192 °C (Atwal, 2012b) and the EU CLP regulations state that a “flammable
liquid means a liquid having a flash point of not more than 60 °C”.
