4.10

n/a

n/a

Surface tension

Waived. In accordance with Column 2 of Annex VII Section 7.6 of the REACH regulation the study does not need to be conducted if the water solubility is below 1mg/L at 20°C.

4.11

n/a

n/a

Flash point

Waived. Flash point is a property relevant to liquids and low melting point solids and so is waived in accordance with Section 2 of annex XI of the REACH regulation.

4.12

Determination of the Flammability and Auto-flammability Properties of Bisphenol-M.

EU A.16

Auto-flammability

No self-ignition below the melting point, 136.5 – 138°C

4.13

Determination of the Flammability and Auto-flammability Properties of Bisphenol-M.

EU A.10

Flammability

Non-flammable

4.14

n/a

n/a

Explosiveness

Waived. In accordance with Column 2 adaptation statement of REACH Annex VII, information requirement section 7.11, this study does not need to be conducted based on a structural assessment of the substance. Examination of the structure indicates that there are no groups associated with explosive properties.

4.15

n/a

n/a

Oxidising properties

Waived. In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, this study does not need to be conducted as this substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials on the basis of its chemical structure.
