Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

The test substance does not contain groups that might lead to ignition in contact with water and/or to the evolution of a flammable gas. Moreover the test substance was dissolved in water during the determination of the water solubility (see section 4.8). It demonstrated that the test substance does not ignite spontaneously in contact with water.

In conclusion, Neosolue-Aqulio is considered ‘not highly flammable’ in contact with water. Further testing is not required.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: ‘not highly flammable’ in contact with water
Conclusions:
Based on evaluation of structural features and experience during the water solubility test, Neosolue-Aqulio is considered ‘not highly flammable’ in contact with water.
