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

Description of key information

- The flammability was not determined because the test substance is at room temperature solid (bulk) to high viscous liquid (Melting Point: 33.8 °C).

- The flammability study does not need to be conducted because the substance is completely molten at 160°C 

- The flammability 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 

The flash point of the test substance is 109.6 °C (see section 4.11). The test substance is therefore not flammable. Flammability (Contact with Water) (EU Method A.12) The practical experience of the sponsor and the test facility shows that no gases are developed, when the test substance is in contact with water.

The test substance is therefore regarded as not being flammable in contact with water.   Pyrophoric Properties (EU Method A.13) The test was not performed experimentally because practical experience exists at the sponsor and the test facility, e.g. when handling small amounts of the test substance repeatedly in air during testing. The test substance is therefore regarded as not being pyrophoric.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Flammability:

The flammability was not determined because the test subtance is liquid. The flash point of is 109.6 °C (see section 4.11). The test substance is therefore not flammable.

Flammability in contact with Water

The practical experience of the sponsor and the test facility shows that no gases are developed, when the test substance is in contact with water.
The test substance is therefore regarded as not being flammable in contact with water.

Pyrophoricity

The test was not performed experimentally because practical experience exists at the sponsor and the test facility, e.g. when handling small amounts of the test substance repeatedly in air during testing. The test substance is therefore regarded as not being pyrophoric.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash point of is 109.6 °C (see section 4.11). The test substance is therefore not flammable.

The test substance is regarded as not being flammable in contact with water.

The test substance is regarded as not being pyrophoric.
