Highly flammable liquid (A9): N
Highly flammable gas (A11): N
In contact with water substance liberates highly flammable gases (A12): N
Flammable (A9): N

Description of key information

The test substance did not burn with a flame or smolder along 200 mm of the test substance strip within four minutes, and therefore was not considered highly flammable.
Annex No.13
Report No. 02RC-0112e


Expert statement A.12:
Dow is requesting a waiver from conducting the EEC A.12 test, Flammability (Conduct with Water), because the subject new chemical substance, TBPAAQ, is essentially insoluble in water (as indicated in section 4.8 water solubility), and has been shown or estimated to be stable in water at or below the limit of solubility. There is no degradation which would release flammable gases.

Expert statement A.13:

The subject new chemical substance, TBPAAQ, has been shown to be stable under ambient storage conditions with no instances of spontaneous ignition at room temperature. TBPAAQ was not ignitable under the A.10 test procedure. Based on this Dow is requesting a waiver from conducting a Pyrophoric Properties Study (EEC A.13) on TBPAAQ.
