1,3-Dioxolane

CAS RN:646-06-0

NFPA Hazard Classification

1,3-Dioxolane

Flammability: 3
Health: 1Instability: 2
Special: None

Health: 1 (Slight)
Materials that, on exposure, would cause significant irritation, but only minor residual injury, including those requiring the use of an approved air-purifying respirator. These materials are only slightly hazardous to health and only breathing protection is needed.

Flammability: 3 (Serious)
This degree includes Class IB and IC flammable liquids and materials that can be easily ignited under almost all normal temperature conditions. Water may be ineffective in controlling or extinguishing fires in such materials.

Instability: 2 (Moderate)
Materials that can undergo violent chemical changes at elevated temperatures and pressures. This also includes materials that may react violently with water or that may form potentially explosive mixtures with water. In advanced or massive fires involving these materials, fire fighting should be done from a safe distance or from a protected location.
