key study
Study period:
01.01.1988
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: VDI 2263, Blatt 1, Kap. 1.2 .
GLP compliance:
not specified
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: Local burning or glowing with at most little spreading
Remarks:
at room temperature
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: Burning off with the appearance of flames or sparks
Remarks:
at 100 °C

room temperature: burning number = 3: Local burning or glowing with at most little spreading

100 °C: burning number = 5: Burning off with the appearance of flames or sparks

Interpretation of results:
other: EU GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance does not show spread of fire after coming into contact with an ignition source.
Executive summary:

The flammability of choline chloride (Additives: colloidal silica 35 %, water 15 %) was investigated according to the German national guideline VDI 2263, Blatt 1, Kap. 1.2 (BASF AG, 1988). As result it is reported, that the substance does not show spread of fire after coming into contact with an ignition source.

Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
the 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
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
01.01.1988
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: VDI 2263, Blatt 1, Kap. 2.6 ("BAM-Ofen")
GLP compliance:
not specified
Test procedure:
other: BAM-Ofen - Screening test
Result:
other: ignition temperature 330 °C
Interpretation of results:
other: EU GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The study report describes the determination of the ignition temperature. The experiment was conducted according to a German national guideline and revealed an ignition temperature of 330 °C.
Executive summary:

The ignition temperature of choline chloride (Additives: colloidal silica 35 %, water 15 %) was investigated according to the German national guideline VDI 2263, Blatt 1, Kap. 2.6 ("BAM-Ofen") (BASF AG, 1988). As result, a value of 330 °C is reported. Based on this screening test the classification of the substsance as self-heating substance does not apply, as up to 330° C no self-heating occurs.

Description of key information

Flammability:


The flammability of choline chloride (Additives: colloidal silica 35 %, water 15 %) was investigated according to the German national guideline VDI 2263, Blatt 1, Kap. 1.2 (BASF AG, 1988). As result it is reported, that the substance does not show spread of fire after coming into contact with an ignition source.


 


Flammability, contact with water:


The study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and in addition 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.


 


Flammability, pyrophoric solids:


The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.


 


Flammability, self-heating substances:


The ignition temperature of choline chloride (Additives: colloidal silica 35 %, water 15 %) was investigated according to the German national guideline VDI 2263, Blatt 1, Kap. 2.6 ("BAM-Ofen") (BASF AG, 1988). As result, a value of 330 °C is reported. Based on this screening test the classification of the substance as self-heating substance does not apply, as up to 330° C no self-heating occurs.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

In the preliminary test it was found that the substance does not show spread of fire after coming into contact with an ignition source at room temperature.

The substance is therefore not easily flammable in the sense of EG-Guideline 92/69/EEC A.10 and in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.

In contact with water the test substance does not evolute gases. Therefore, the test substance is not regarded as hazardous according to EG-Guideline 92/69/EEC A.12 and in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.

Based on the physical state, the structural elements and the melting point the substance has not to be classified as pyrophoric solid in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.

The substance has not to be classified as self-heating substance because based on a screening test the classification of the substance as self-heating substance does not apply, as up to 330 °C no self-heating occurs.
