Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

In a GLP compliant study, performed according to EU method A.10, the flammability of the test substance was determined (RCC 2003). The flame of a gas burner was used as a ignition source. The test item could not be ingnited with a flame (contact time ±2 minutes). The color of the gas burner became orange and some reddish liquid ran out. The surface became encrusted and was glowing but underneath the test item remained unchanged. Therefore it could be concluded that the test substance is not highly flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the test substance is not flammable, classification is not needed according to the Directive 67/584/EEC and according to the EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
