Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
other:
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

Flammability: flash point of 41 - 70°C at 1013 hPa

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The flammability study is not required for liquids as flammability is assessed on the basis of flash point (see IUCLID Section 4.11).

There is no indication on the basis of structure and experience in handling and use that the substance is pyrophoric (flammable in contact with air) or flammable in contact with water.

Therefore, in accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI, there is no need to conduct further flammability testing.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Reliable flash point values of 41°C, 57°C, 57.5°C and 70°C have been recorded for the substance with a predicted boiling point of 180°C.

The flash point of 41, 57 and 57.5°C indicates the following classifications:

Classification and Labelling according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008: Flam. Liq. 3, H226: Flammable Liquid and Vapour

The flash points of >60°C indicate that the substance should not be classified for flammability.
