Description of key information

Non flammable (based on flash point).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The substance is a liquid, and the key value for flammability of liquids is the flash point. Based on the flash point of 131 °C and the classification criteria specified in Regulation (EC) No. 1271/2008, the substance should not be considered as flammable. Regarding flammability on contact with water, no reaction is expected from the chemical structure, and none was observed in the water solubility study. Testing for flammability has therefore been waived because the study is scientifically unjustified.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Annex I, section 2.6, "Flammable liquid means a liquid having a flash point of not more than 60 °C". The flash point, 131 °C, is higher than this value and so the substance should not be classified as a flammable liquid. Furthermore, in accordance with Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Annex I, section 2.3, if the substance is used in an aerosol at >1%, the aerosol does not need to be considered for classification due to the presence of the substance because the flash point of the substance is > 93 °C. The substance is a liquid under standard conditions, with a freezing point of < -50 °C, so the substance should not be classified as a flammable solid, and has a low vapour pressure of 0.23 Pa at 20 °C, so the substance should not be classified as a flammable gas.
