Description of key information

The preliminary screening test was performed for the determination of the flammability of (solid) 4,4’-Isopropylidenediphenol, propoxylated (BPA+2PO). Based on the results obtained, the test substance is considered ‘not highly flammable’. Additionally, the flash point of liquefied substance was determined to be > 200°C. Based on this the substance is not considered a 'flammable liquid'.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

With regards to flammability in contact with water, the structural features of the substance were evaluated and it was concluded that the substance does not contain groups that might lead to the evolution of a dangerous amount of flammable gas when coming into contact with water or damp air. No metals, transition metals, boron or silicon are present. Also, handling during the water solubility test confirms this conclusion.

With regards to pyrophoric properties, evaluation of the structural features of the substance revealed that the substance does not contain any chemical group that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming into contact with air.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the above mentioned result, classification according to the CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 and the Dangerous Substance Directive 67/548/EC is not necessary.
