Description of key information

The test substance is a 'flammable liquid'.

The test substance is „not highly flammable‟ in contact with water (UN Test N.5).

The test substance has no pyrophoric properties.

The test substance is not self-heating.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

The available data on self-heating properties 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: The substance is a liquid. A liquid shows not self-heating behaviour if it is not absorbed on a large surface.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Classified as flammable liquid and vapour, Category 3 (H226).
