Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Study period:
The study was conducted on 06 October 2016.
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
other:
Reason / purpose:
data waiving: supporting information
Qualifier:
no guideline required
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Theoretical consideration, based on chemical structure of the components in the formulation.
GLP compliance:
no
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Not relevant (theoretical consideration based on chemical structure).
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
From the structural formula of the constituents Citrathal Concentrate S TW is not expected to react significantly with water at 20'C, and will in no way emit flammable gases. This is in line with the fact that during studies such as the determination of the water solubility of Citrathal Concentrate S TW (Citrathal Concentrate S TW Slow Stirring Water Solubility (Flask Method), Noack Laboratorien GmbH, Sarstedt, Germany, Study ID 160218GS/CWE17058) no reaction of Citrathal Concentrate S TW with water was observed.
Therefore it can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that the contact of the substance with water or damp air will not lead to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable.
Executive summary:

It can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that the contact of the substance Citrathal Concentrate S TW with water or damp air will not lead to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable.

Endpoint:
flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Justification for type of information:
The substance is a liquid under standard conditions (IUCLID section 4.1, CSR section 1.4) with a vapour pressure of 24 hPa at 20 °C (see IUCLID section 4.6, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable gas.
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Justification for type of information:
The substance is a liquid under standard conditions with a freezing point of <-50 °C (see IUCLID section 4.2, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable solid.
Reason / purpose:
data waiving: supporting information

Description of key information

In accordance with annex XI of REACH flammability(solids) is not technically possible for this liquid substance.
In accordance with annex XI of REACH flammability(contact with air and water) is not necessary based on experience from safe handling and use

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Testing for this endpoint has been waived because the studies are scientifically unjustified. The substance is a liquid and the key value for flammability of liquids is the flash point.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Annex I, section 2.6, "Flammable liquid means a liquid having a flash point of not more than 60 °C". The flash point (IUCLID section 4.11 , CSR section 1.4), 38°C, is lower than this value and so the substance should be classified as a flammable liquid. The substance is a liquid under standard conditions (IUCLID section 4.1, CSR section 1.4) with a freezing point of < -50 °C (see IUCLID section 4.2, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable solid, and with a vapour pressure of 24 hPa at 20 °C (see IUCLID section 4.6, CSR section 1.4), so the substance should not be classified as a flammable gas.
