Description of key information

Flammability Limits (% by vol.)
Lower limit (at 125°C and 740 mmHg) : 2.1
Upper limit : 19.3
According to EC-guidelines, the substance is not flammable (gas/aerosol). However, according to the CFR-code, the substance is 'moderately flammable'. At elevated temperatures, a risk for fire exist.
