Description of key information

Zinc dilaurate is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VII, section 7.13, column 2, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, for example on the basis of the chemical structure (e.g. inorganic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms). Zinc dilaurate does not contain a surplus of oxygen or any structural groups known to be correlated with a tendency to react exothermally with combustible material. Derogation from testing is hereby applied for.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. Therefore, classification is not required for oxidising properties according to CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and Directive 67/548 EEC.
