Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: Method N.1 specified in the United Nations, Recommedations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, fourth revised edition, 2003.
Deviations:
no
Principles of method if other than guideline:
A mould (250 x 20 x 10 mm) was loosely filled with test item (tested as received). A noncombustible, non-porous board was placed onto the mould which was then inverted. The mould was removed and an air-rich Bunsen burner flame applied to one end of the pile for five minutes.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)

Test material

Constituent 1
Reference substance name:
Refinable No 5.2: Speiss leaching residue
IUPAC Name:
Refinable No 5.2: Speiss leaching residue
Details on test material:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Refinable No 5.2: Speiss leaching residue
- Physical state: Dark grey solid
- Lot/batch number: 151944

Results and discussion

Flammable solids
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
Remarks:
or specified in description of method (migrated information)
Remarks on result:
other: The pile failed to ignite during the five minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied.
Pyrophoric solids
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state (migrated information).
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)
Remarks:
corresponding to 'no' in migrated source record.
Pyrophoric liquids
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state (migrated information).
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)
Remarks:
corresponding to 'no' in migrated source record.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test item is not classified as a readily combustible solid under Division 4.1 as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The results of a GLP compliant, guideline test are that the test item is not classified as a readily combustible solid under Division 4.1 as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
