Description of key information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the study does not need to be conducted as
(a) No flammability in contact with water: The substance contains no metals or metalloids and therefore will not release flammable gases in contact
with water.
(b) Experience in production or handling; substance is known to be stable at room temperature.
(c) Not a flammable solid: On approach of an ignition source, a short burning may be expected, however, due to the low melting point, a self-sustaining combustion without supply of further energy is to be excluded. Therefore, a classification as flammable solid can be ruled out. Further, due to the low melting point,self-heating behavior can be excluded. The hazard of flammability is then described by the flash point.

non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

(a) No flammability in contact with water: The substance contains no metals or metalloids and therefore will not release flammable gases in contact with water.

(b) Pyorphoric properties: Experience in production or handling; substance is known to be stable at room temperature.

(c) Flammability: Not a flammable solid. On approach of an ignition source, a short burning may be expected, however, due to the low melting point, a self-sustaining combustion without supply of further energy is to be excluded. Therefore, a classification as flammable solid can be ruled out. Further, due to the low melting point,self-heating behavior can be excluded.
