Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit 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 experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
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 known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

highly flammable
no pyrophoricity
no flammability in contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

Based on the measured flash point of 11°C and the boiling point of 122°C, the substance is highly flammable.

Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability in contact with water are not expected.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on the flash point and the boiling point of the test substance meet the criteria for classification as highly flammable liquid cat. 2 (H225) according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.

The available data on pyrophoricity and flammbility in contact with water of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification: Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use pyrophoricity and flammability in contact with water are not expected.
