Description of key information

not oxidising

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

The oxidising properties of the substance were determined in a test according to EU Method A.17. The maximum burning rate, which was obtained in a 10/90 sample/cellulose mixture weight ratio was lower than that of the reference mixture (60% barium nitrate). The substance has no oxidising properties as defined by the EU Regulation (EC 1272/2008). Furthermore, the substance contains oxygen and chlorine but these elements are chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen. Therefore, the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials on the basis of the chemical structure.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on oxidising properties of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification: Based on the structure the substance is not oxidising.
