Description of key information

No oxidising properties. In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the oxidising properties do not need to be tested, because the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials on the basis of the chemical structure. Iron powder contains iron in the zero valent state and to be oxidising it would require reduction of iron to a negative oxidation state. Such negative oxidation states do not exist for iron.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no
