Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to other study
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Interpretation of results:
other: EU GHS criteria not met
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Interpretation of results:
other: EU GHS criteria not met
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is completely molten at 160°C
Interpretation of results:
other: EU GHS criteria not met

Description of key information

Flammability:

Substance is flammable liquid, having a flash point of 57.5 °C at 1013 hPa and therefore the substance has to be classified as "Flammable Liquid, Categorie 3" according to EU GHS.

Flammability, contact with water:

The test material does not contain structural components associated with pyrophoricity and/or flammability on contact with water mentioned in the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, chapter R.7.1.10.3, page 123. Therefore, it can be concluded that the test material exhibit no risk for pyrophoricity and/or flammability on contact with water. No study is required.

Flammability, pyrophoric liquids:

The study is scientifically not necessary, because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and the test material does not contain structural components associated with pyrophoricity mentioned in the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, chapter R.7.1.10.3, page 123. Therefore, it can be concluded that the test material exhibit no risk for pyrophoricity.

Flammability, self-heating substances:

The study is scientifically not necessary, because the substance is completely molten at 160 °C. The substance is a liquid.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the determined flash point of 57.5 °C at 1013 hPa the substance has to be classified as "Flammable Liquid, Categorie 3" according to EU GHS.

Based on the physical state, the structural elements and the melting point the substance has neither to be classified as flammable in contact with water, nor as pyrophoric liquid, nor as self-heating substance.
