Description of key information

Additional physico-chemical information for Triethanol amineacetate: flammability in contact with water; and pyrophoric properties

Additional information

A test substance is considered highly flammable, when it ignites spontaneously when coming into contact with water or damp air, or evolves flammable gas at a rate >1 L/kg of the test substance per hour. The strucuture of the test substance does not contain groups that might lead to the evolution of a dangerous amount of flammable gas when coming into contact with water or damp air. No metals, transition metals, boron or silicon are present. In conclusion, Triethanol amineacetate is not highly flammable in contact with water or damp air.

The molecular structure of the test substance does contain any chemical groups that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming in contact with air. Furthermore, experience in handling during this project (Flammability test) shows the test substance does not ignite spontaneously after coming in contact with air at room temperature. In conclusion, Triethanol amineacetate is not pyrophoric.
