no flammability on contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

2 -Hexyl-2 '-hydroxy-5 'methyldecananilide (AF-654) is not flammable on ignition as determined in the test according to EU Method A.10. Based on experience in handling and use and the chemical structure, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected. Expert statements based on relevant guidelines (EU Method A.13 and A.12, respectively) support this conclusion.

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 or Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

Based on the result of the test according to the EU Method A.10, the substance is not flammable on ignition.

Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected (in regard to EU Methods A.13 and A.12, respectively).
