Description of key information

Flash-point 
Testing does not need to be conducted for substances that are solids or gases at room temperature. According the Adaptations of the standard physico-chemical testing requirements under REACH.
Reaction mass of SEX is solid at room temperature.
According “ANNEX VII - STANDARD INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBSTANCES MANUFACTURED OR IMPORTED IN QUANTITIES OF ONE TONNE OR MORE” AND the Adaptations of the standard physico-chemical testing requirements under REACH, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is solid at room temperature.

The study does not need to be conducted if:
— the substance is inorganic, or
— the substance only contains volatile organic components with flash-points above 100 °C for aqueous solutions, or
— the estimated flash-point is above 200 °C, or
— the flash-point can be accurately predicted by interpolation from existing characterised materials.
- Testing does not need to be conducted for substances that are solids or gases at room temperature.
Therefore testing for Flash-point does not need to be performed.
