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

Description of key information

In accordance with REACH Annex XI this study is scientifically unjustified. 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  3-[[5-methyl-2-(1-methylethyl)cyclohexyl]oxy]propane-1,2-diol does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex I, Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, the substance does not require classification with respect to flammability.
