Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state (migrated information).
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)
Remarks:
corresponding to 'no' in migrated source record.
Remarks on result:
no reaction with water observed
Remarks:
corresponding to 'no' in migrated source record.
Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The substance is considered to be non flammable.
Executive summary:

The flammability of the test substance was assessed based on the properties of the substance and its chemical structure. Observations during handling of the substance for various physicochemical and toxicological testing showed that the substance did not ignite on contact with air and did not release harnful gases in contact with water. The substance was considered to be thermally stable and non flammable.

Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available

Description of key information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the flammability study does not need to be conducted as the flammability is deduced from the flash point and the boiling point. Based on the chemical structure, pyrophoric properties are not to be expected. The water reactivity study does not need to be conducted as, based on the chemical structure of the substance, water reactivity is not to be expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the flammability study does not need to be conducted as the flammability is deduced from the flash point and the boiling point. Based on the chemical structure, pyrophoric properties are not to be expected. The water reactivity study does not need to be conducted as, based on the chemical structure of the substance, water reactivity is not to be expected.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the chemical structure, pyrophoric properties are not to be expected. The water reactivity study does not need to be conducted as, based on the chemical structure of the substance, water reactivity is not to be expected.
