Description of key information

Flammability (solids) = non flammable, EU Method A.10, Calmels 1995b
Flammability (contact with water) - No study conducted
Flammability (pyrophoric properties) - No study conducted

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flammability of the test material (burning characteristics) was assessed in accordance with EU Method A.10. Under the conditions of the test, the test material did not propagate combustion. The test material is therefore not classified as highly flammable in relation to its burning characteristics.

In accordance with section 1.5 of REACH Annex XI, the study to assess flammability of the test material on contact with water does not need to be performed as, based on chemical structure, water reactivity is not to be expected.

In accordance with section 1.5 of REACH Annex XI, the study to assess the pyrophoric properties of the test material does not need to be performed as, based on chemical structure, pyrophoric properties are not to be expected.

Overall, the test material can be concluded to be non-flammable as it did not produce a positive result in the flammability (solids) study and, based on chemical structure, water reactivity and pyrophoric properties are not to be expected.

The available data are considered to be complete and the conclusion, non-flammable, was taken forward for risk assessment.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Regulation EC No. 1272/2008, the test material does not require classification for flammability as it produced negative results in all performed flammability test.
