The substance has no pyrophoric properties.

The substance does not emit flammable gases in contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Flammability:

In accordance with section 2 of REACH Annex XI, a study is technically not feasible as the substance is a liquid. The flammability of a liquid is described by the flash point.

Pyrophoric properties:

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, a study does not need to be conducted as it is scientifically unjustified. Based on experience during handling and use, no pyrophoric properties were observed and the structure does not give a reference to pyrophoric properties.

Contact with water:

Experience in production or handling; substance is known to be stable at room temperature. The structural formulas of the starting materials and all possible reaction products contain none of the functional group quoted in Manual of Tests and Criteria, appendix 6, article 5.3).

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is not yet classified in the Annex I of Directive 67/548/EEC. According to the information summarized below no classification on flammability is needed:

- As liquid, flash point up to 206.5 °C;

- As liquid, boiling point is 335 °C;

- No pyrophoric property, based on experience from production and handling;

- It does not ignite spontaneously with water and does not liberate flammable gases in hazardous amounts in contact with water.

Based on the data summarized above, the test substance is also not flammable according to GHS (Regulation EC 1272/2008).
