Description of key information

non-flammable on ignition
no pyrophoricity
no flammability on contact with water

not self-heating

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

No propagation of combustion was observed (EU A.10). Based on assessment of the chemical structure of the substance in combination with experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected. The substance is not self-heating because it is completely molten at 160 °C.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability 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:

According to the test EU A.10 (flammable solids), the substance is not flammable on ignition (no propagation of combustion was observed). Based on the assessment of the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected. Based on the melting point significantly below the value of 160 °C, the substance demonstates no self-heating properties.
