non flammable

Additional information

In accordance with Column 2 adaptation statement of REACH Annex VII, information requirement section 7.10, this study does not need to be conducted based on a structural assessment of the substance. This substance at 100% active is a waxy solid which is very hygroscopic and prefers to exist in aqueous solution. In accordance with REACH Annex XI this study is scientifically unjustified. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of Hydroxypropyl Bis-Hydroxyethyldimonium Chloride (Cola® Moist 200) does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case. It does not demonstrate a flash point. The substance in solution boils away without flashing. It is not water reactive nor does it exhibit pyrophorocity.
