EC number: 220-449-8
CAS number: 2768-02-7
Flammability: flammable liquid
The flammability study is not
required for liquids as flammability is assessed on the basis of flash
point. The substance has a measured flash point of 25.5 - 26°C at 1013
There is no indication on the
basis of structure and experience in handling and use that the substance
is pyrophoric (flammable in contact with air) or flammable in contact
Therefore, in accordance with
Section 1 of REACH Annex XI, there is no need to conduct further
A lower explosive limit (LEL) of
1.4vol% and an upper explosive limit (UEL) of 23.94vol% were determined
for the substance in accordance with ASTM E918-83. In available
secondary sources, LEL of 1.4vol% at 54°C and UEL of 19.9vol% at 82°C
and LEL value of 1.1vol% were reported for the submission substance.
The substance has reliable
measured flash points in the range 23-26°C (key study 25.5-26°C) and a
boiling point of 123°C. These results indicate that the substance should
be classified as Flammable Liquid Category 3 according to Regulation
(EC) No. 1272/2008. Sources to which reliability could not be assigned
indicate flash points in the range 22-28°C; some of these results would
indicate a different classification.
According to Regulation (EC)
No. 1272/2008 (CLP Regulations)
Flash point is sensitive to
the presence of volatile impurities in the substance. Individual
manufacturers will classify their product according to the flash point
measured for that product.
