Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

For this endpoint a read-across approach was made to the closely related substance MDEA-Esterquat C16-18 and C18 unsatd.. The fatty acid composition, as well as all functional groups of the read-across substance are identical. An additional methyl-group in the amine backbone of the registration substance and chloride instead of methosulfate is expected to have no significant impact on flammability.

In a preliminary screening test according to EC no. 440/2008, A.10., the flammability of MDEA-Esterquat C16 -18 and C18 unsatd. was investigated. After removal of the ignition source, no propagation of combustion of the test substance was observed. With this result the outcome of the screening test is negative and according to CLP (2012) classification criteria the substance is not classified.
