Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information not classified as a flammable liquid
Conclusions:
This handbook reports the following values regarding the explosive limits of benzyl chloride in air:
lower explosive limit : 2.1 vol%
upper explosive limit: 6.5 vol%
Benzotrichloride should not be classified as a flammable liquid according to the CLP regulation n°1272/2008 since the flash point is higher than 60 °C (i.e: 108 °C).
Executive summary:

This handbook reports the following values regarding the explosive limits of benzotrichloride in air:

lower explosive limit : 2.1 vol%

upper explosive limit: 6.5 vol%

The classification of benzotrichloride regarding its flammability category according to the CLP regulation n° 1272/2008:

benzotrichloride should not be classified as a flammable liquid since its flash point is equal to 108°C.

Only liquids with a flash point inferior or equal to 60°C are considered as flammable liquids.
