Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2013
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Guidelines followed
GLP compliance:
no
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

Safety Pre-Test:

A small amount of the test item was heated on a magnesia groove with a gas burner. Glowing was observed. The test item showed no signs of ignition.

Preliminary screening test:

The test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
FAT 36014/Z should be considered as not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

FAT 36014/Z was evaluated for flammability potential in a test conducted in accordance to EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids)). During the screening test, a 250 mm pile of the test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes. Hence, determination of burning rate was not required and the test item was considered as not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

FAT 36014/Z TE was considered to be not highly flammable in a flammability study, hence it does not warrant classification as per the criteria of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
