Description of key information

The substance is flammable in the sense of regulation EC/1272/2008 as well as directive 67/548/EEC. The substance is neither pyrophoric nor water reactive. Furthermore, the substance shows no self-heating behaviour.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the flammability study does not need to be conducted as the flammability is deduced from flash point and boiling point.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the pyrophoric properties study does not need to be conducted as based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties are not to be expected.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the water reactivity study does not need to be conducted as based on chemical structure water reactivity is not to be expected.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the UN test N 4 for self-heating substances and mixtures do not need to be conducted as the substance is a liquid.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The determined flash point of the substance meets the criteria for classification of regulation EC/1272/2008 as well as directive 67/548/EEC. For regulation EC/1272/2008 if the flash point is > 23 but < 60 °C the substance is classified as flammable liquid Cat. 3 (H226). For directive 67/548/EEC if the flash point is > 21 °C but < 55°C the substance is classifed with R10. All other criteria for flammability could be excluded therefore no further classification is necessary.
