key study
Study period:
2009-11-16 to 2010-07-12
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Component of a Polyurethane System
Polyoxypropylene triamine
(39423-51-3) 60-100%
Key result
Identity of evolved gas:
not applicable as no gas evolved
Remarks on result:
no reaction with water observed

Test Results : Initial Tests

No gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed during any of the tests.

Test Results : Final Test

No gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed during any of the tests. The sample does not generate flammable gases in contact with water.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
No gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed during any of the tests. The sample does not generate flammable gases in contact with water.
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2009-11-18 to 2010-07-12
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.13 (Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Component of a Polyurethane System
Polyoxypropylene triamine
(39423-51-3) 60-100%
Key result
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)

No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore not a pyrophoric liquid.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore not a pyrophoric liquid.
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid

Description of key information

The test substance is not considered a substance which emits flammable gases in contact with water following EU test method A.12 and not pyrophoric based on EU method A.13 (Baker, 2010).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Two GLP studies were conducted on the flammable properties of Trimethylolpropanepoly(oxypropylene)triamine following EU test method A.12 and EU method A.13 in which in both studies negative results were observed. Based on its flashpoint (218.5 °C), it can thus be concluded that Trimethylolpropanepoly(oxypropylene)triamine does not have flammable properties.
