Description of key information

The substance has a high flashpoint (78oC) and a boiling point of 215.7oC not indicating flammability. With regards to flammability in contact with water, the structural features of the substance were evaluated and it was concluded that the substance does not contain groups that might lead to the evolution of a dangerous amount of flammable gas when coming into contact with water or damp air (see also ECHA guidance R.7.1.10.8, 2014). No metals, transition metals, boron or silicon are present. Also, handling during the water solubility test confirms this conclusion. 
With regards to pyrophoric properties, evaluation of the structural features of the substance revealed that the substance does not contain any chemical group that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming into contact with air (ECHA guidance R.7.1.10.5, 2014).
If Study Conducted:
Veilex 2 was found not be flammable using an reliable GLP study according to EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water)) orEU guideline method A.13(Flammability (contact with air)).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the flashpoint of Veilex 2 (78 degrees C)and the boiling point (215.7 degrees C) as well as its structural features the substance does not need to be classified for flammability according to the CLP Regulations (EC) No 1272/2008.
