Description of key information

The flammability of the substance is derived by its flash point and boiling point.

Pyrophoric properties as well as water reactivity could be excluded via the chemical structure.

The substance is not a self-heating substance or mixture.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
highly flammable

Additional information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the flammability is deduced from flash point and boiling point.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the study does not need to be performed as based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties are not to be expected.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the study does not need to be performed as based on chemical structure water reactivity is not to be expected.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the UN test N 4 for self-heating substances and mixtures does not need to be conducted as the substance is a liquid.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Annex I, Section 2.1, Section 2.2, Section 2.3, Section 2.7, Section 2.9, Section 2.10 Section 2.11, Section 2.12 of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and UN GHS Rev 6 (2015) the substance has not to be classified as readily combustible solid in class 4 Division 4.1, self-heating substance in Class 4 Division 4.2, substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases in Class 4 Division 4.3, pyrophoric liquid, pyrophoric solid in class 4 Division 4.2, flammable gases in class 2 or as aerosol in class 2.

The following classification criteria are met:

R11 (highly flammable) of EU Directive 67/548/EEC: flash point <= 21 °C and initial boiling point > 35 °C;

Flammable liquids, Category 2 (highly flammable liquids and vapour) of EU CLP: flash point <= 23 °C and initial boiling point > 35 °C
