Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period


The test item melted and discoloured itself to white if it came into contact with the Butan burner flame. A inflammability of the test item was not possible. An independent burning of the test item without the contact of the burner flame was also not possible. The test of the duration of burn down was cancelled. The test item is not low inflammable.

The test substance was determined to be non-flammable according to E.U. Method A.10

Description of key information

non flammable

no pyrophoricity

no flammability on contact with water

not self-heating

Key value for chemical safety assessment

not classified

Additional information

The test substance was determined to be non-flammable according to E.U. Method A.10.

Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected.

The substance is completely molten at a temperature well below 160 °C and therefore shows not self-heating behaviour if it is not absorbed on a large surface.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability on ignition, flammability in contact with water, pyrophoricity and self-heating of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification.
