Description of key information

Not flammable and does not form flammable aerosols.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The material ignites in the A.10 screening test when in contact with a flame, but combustion stops after removal of the ignition source. No propagation of burning. This means that according to Directive 67/548/EEC the material is not considered as highly flammable.

In addition, it is not expected that sodium chlorate has pyrophoric properties and reacts with water. Instead it is very well soluble in water.

The substance does not form aerosols.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the information indicated above, no classification is needed on flammability, pyrophoric properties and reactivity with water.
