Description of key information

non flammable
no pyrophoricity
no flammability on contact with water

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

Based on flash point and boiling point the substance hexadecanoic acid, methyl ester (CAS 112-39-0) is a non flammable liquid.

Basedon experience in handling and use and the chemical structure pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected.

Justification for classification or non-classification

No classification, the substance is a non flammable solid.


Justification: The flash point was determined for this substance inspite it is a solid. The flash point is measured to be 176 °C, therefore, the flammability of the substance is deduced from flash point. The flash point is > 60 °C.

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