Description of key information

Contact with water: 
The substance does not liberate highly flammable gases in contact with water or humid air as determined by the EU-method A.12 (Currenta, 2009).
Flammability:
The flammability of a substance is determined following the method N.1 (UN-manual of testing) or A.10 (EU-method). But in accordance with section 2 of REACH Annex XI, a study is technically not possible as the substance is a liquid. The flammability of a liquid is described by the flash point.
Pyrophoric properties:
Pyrophoric properties are determined following the methods N.3 (UN-Manual of testing) or A.13 (EU-method). But in accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, a study does not need to be conducted as it is scientifically not necessary. During handling and use, no pyrophoric properties were observed and the structure does not give a reference to pyrophoric properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on experience during handling and use of the test substance ester pyrophoric properties can be excluded.

A test according to the method A.12 for the determination of the flammability on contact with water or humid air showed that the test item did not liberate highly flammable gases in contact with water or humid air.
