In accordance with REACH Annex XI Section 1, testing does not appear scientifically necessary as, based on chemical structure, pyrophoric properties are not to be expected. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of hexyl acetate does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case. Thus, this study is scientifically unjustified.
Hexyl acetate is a liquid with a flash point of 58°C.
Therefore, the test material is classified as flammable Cat. 3 according
to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 and flammable (R10) according to
