Endpoint:
flash point, other
Remarks:
solids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the flash point is only relevant to liquids and low melting point solids
Justification for type of information:
According to REACH Regulation (Annex VII, column 2), the study on the flash point does not need to be done because the flash point is only relevant to liquids and low melting point solids. Whereas the test item is described as a hygroscopic solid in the certificate of analysis, it is marketed by the manufacturer and lead registrant exclusively as a liquid. While showing an experimentally determined melting point in the range 149.8°C at atmospheric pressure, no critical behaviour at all could be observed in the flammability test according to UN Test N.1. Furthermore, the test item exhibits no reactive chemical groups in its molecule that would constitute any critical oxidising or explosive properties. Due to these reasons, the flash point is not considered of primary relevance for the test item and an experimental study is not deemed necessary.
