Additional information

Flammable liquid

The test on the flammability (Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.10) was not performed as the test item is a liquid. For liquids the primary value for ease of ignition is the flash point conducted using Method A9 ‘Flash Point Method’ of Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008. The result of the Flash Point test is used to allocate a liquid substance into the appropriate flammability class. The substance has not to be classified as flammable liquid according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.

 

Pyrophoric liquid

In accordance with section 2.9.4 Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and ECHA guidance on the application of CLP Criteria section 2.10.4.2 the classification procedure for pyrophoric liquids need not to be applied when experience in manufacturing or handling shows that the substance or mixture does not ignite spontaneously when coming into contact with air at normal temperatures. Based on the experience in handling and use the substance is not known to ignite spontaneously when coming into contact with air at normal temperatures. Thus, no study was conducted and consequently the substance has not to be considered for classification as pyrophoric liquid.

 

Substances which, in contact with water, emit flammable gases

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VI and with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 Annex I section 2.12.4.1 the classification procedure for this hazard class need not be applied if:

a) The chemical structure of the substance or mixture does not contain metals or metalloids; or

b) Experience in handling and use shows that the substance or mixture does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water; or

c) The substance or mixture is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture.

The substance did not contain metals or metalloids. Therefore the substance has not to be considered for classification as substances which, in contact with water, emit flammable gases.

  

Self-heating substances and mixtures

In accordance with ECHA guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria section 2.11.4.2 and ECHA guidance on IR/CSA chapter R.7a section R7.1.10.7 the test does not to be conducted as in general liquids are not classified as self-heating since the phenomena applies only to solids. Furthermore the test method is not applicable to liquids according to guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria section 2.11.4.2. Thus no classification procedure for self-heating substances and mixtures was required and consequently and the substance has not to be considered for classification as self-heating substances and mixtures.

Aerosol

A study does not need to be conducted because the substance is no aerosol.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Classification, Labelling, and Packaging Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008
The available experimental test data are reliable and suitable for classification purposes under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. As a result the substance is not considered to be classified as flammable, pyrohporic or self heating material or substance that emits flammable gases in contact with water, under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, as amended for the eighth time in Regulation (EU) No 2016/218.
