Description of key information

non flammable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance octanoic acid, methyl ester (CAS 111-11-5) is a non flammable liquid.

Based on experience in handling and use as well as an assessment of the chemical structure, pyrophoricity and flammability when in contact with water is not expected.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance is a non flammable liquid.

Based on experience in handling and use as well as an assessment of the chemical structure, pyrophoricity and flammability when in contact with water is not expected.
