Description of key information

non flammable
no pyrophoricity
no flammability on contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

Based on flash point and boiling point, the substance is a non flammable solid. Based on experience in handling and use and the chemical structure, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected. A study performed with a similar substance alcohols, C12-14 (even numbered), ethoxylated (1 - 2,5 EO) sulphated, sodium salts (CAS No. 68891-38-3) according to EU method A.10 is a further confirmation that the test item and other similar alcohols ethoxylated sulphated in the category are non flammable on ignition.

Flash point: 174 °C at 1013 mBar (EU A.9, closed cup).

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive, but not sufficient for classification:

Based on the flash point and boiling point, supported by EU A.10 test with a similar category substance, the substance is non flammable.

Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected.
