Description of key information

The substance is not flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Relevant literature sources and studies indicate that this substance has no flashpoint. However, under certain conditions the substance can form flammable vapour/air mixtures (13-22 % Vol at 20 °C) which under normal circumstances are difficult to ignite (under optimum conditions of 18 % Vol in air at 20 °C the minimum energy needed for ignition is 9300 mJ, which is many 10000 fold higher than for vapours ofother common flammable solvents. Classification as flammable is thus not required.

 

Water reactivity and pyrophoricity are not expected based on the structural properties and experience in handling the substance.

The substance does not form aerosols.

 

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the substance is not expected to be flammable, classification is not warranted according to EU Directive 67/584/EEC and EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
