Description of key information

FAT 40825/A has no oxidizing properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:

Additional information

The determination of the oxidising properties of FAT 40825/A was performed in accordance with the EEC Directive 92/69, Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties, A. 17 "Oxidizing Properties (solids)", EEC Publication No. L383, December 1992.

During the preliminary test the FAT 40825/A/cellulose mixture ignited poorly and the flame became orange. Without contact to the ignition source, the flame extinguished after 2 seconds. White smoke was observed and the test item mixture glowed for about 2.5 minutes.

The barium nitrate/cellulose mixture during the same test burned for 80 seconds with a blazing, light yellowish flame, emitting sparks. Since the test item mixture burned clearly slower than the barium nitrate mixture, a main test was not necessary.

In conclusion, FAT 40825/A has no oxidising properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In a test according to EU method A.17 the substance showed to be not an oxidiser. Consequently, the substance is not classifiable for oxidising properties according to CLP (Regulation EC No 1272/2008) or DSD (Directive 67/548/EEC).
