None of the substances in the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14-C22 category are considered to be highly flammable. Experience in manufacture and handling shows that the substances do not ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperatures and are stable at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days). Experience has also shown that the substances do not react with water. Therefore none of the substances in the category meet the criteria for classification as flammable solids, pyrophoric substances or substance which in contact with water emit flammable gases.
The flammability data for lithium myristate, lithium 12 -hydroxystearate and lithium behenate are taken from proprietary study reports (Harlan 2013).
