Description of key information

- Flammability: In accordance with REACH Annex XI this study is scientifically unjustified. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point). 
- Pyrophoric properties: Testing of the substance for pyrophoric properties appears scientifically unjustified as the substance is a liquid with 58.8% water content. As pyrophoric properties are only relevant for solids this study is omitted. The substance has no pyrophoric properties.
- Contact with water: As the substance is has a content of 58.8% water and experience shows that there is no emission of flammable gases in contact with water the study is omitted. The substance has no potential to emit flammable gases in contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Regulation, Art. 3, and ECHA "Guidance for identification and naming of substances under REACH and CLP" v1.2, March 2012, substances have to be separated from solvents if this is not affecting the stability of the substance or changing its composition.

In this case, separation of water would only be possible by thermical damaging of the substance. Furthermore, it was not possible to spray dry the pigment solution as it stuck to and partly melted on the conus dryer.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is not readily combustible, has no pyrophoric property, and shows no flammability in contact with water; and hence no classification according to both Directive 67/548/EEC and CLP (Regulation EC 1272/2008).
