Description of key information

The substance Zinc bis(2-ethylhexanoate) is an inorganic, clear, highly viscous liquid, with a melting point of < 213 K and no boiling point, since it decomposes (< 200 °C) prior to boiling. Zinc bis(2-ethylhexanoate) has a density of 1.18 g/mL at 20 °C and a log Pow > 5.7. The substance has a water solubility of 5.586 ± 0.202 g/L at 20 ± 1.0 °C and pH 6.2 – 6.5 and a viscosity of 25800 mPa*s at 70 °C.

Zinc bis(2-ethylhexanoate) is not highly flammable, non explosive and non oxidising.

Particle size distribution (granulometry), vapour pressure, surface tension, flash point, flammability, explosive properties, auto-ignition temperature (liquids), oxidising properties, stability in organic solvents and identity of relevant degradation products as well as dissociation constant are not relevant for this substance in accordance with column 2 of the respective sections of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annexes VII to IX or Annex XI, section 1.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification:

- Flammability: Zinc bis(2-ethylhexanoate) is not flammable. Therefore, classification is not required for flammability according to CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and its subsequent amendments.

- Explosiveness: Zinc bis(2-ethylhexanoate) is considered to be void of any explosive properties. Therefore, classification is not required for explosiveness according to CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and its subsequent amendments.

- Oxidising properties: There are no chemical groups present in zinc bis(2-ethylhexanoate which are associated with oxidising properties.

According to the criteria of CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and its subsequent amendments, zinc bis(2-ethylhexanoate does not have to be classified and has no obligatory labelling requirement for oxidising properties.
