Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
16 March 2010 - 14 June 2010
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
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
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
Interpretation of results:
other: not flammable
Conclusions:
The preliminary screening test was performed for the determination of the flammability of MIZULAN FL-80. No propagation of combustion of the test substance along 200 mm length of the pile within 4 minutes was observed. According to the guidelines performance of the burning rate test is not required. Based on the results obtained the test substance is considered ‘not highly flammable’.

Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Type of information:
other: statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
16 March 2010 - 14 June 2010
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Remarks:
The EU method was followed. Based on the molecular structure a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)

None of the components of the test substance does contain groups that might lead to ignition in contact with water and/or to the evolution of a flammable gas. Moreover the test substance was dissolved in water during the determination of the validation of an analytical method (see section 8). It demonstrated that the test substance does not ignite spontaneously in contact with water.

Interpretation of results:
other: not highly flammable in contact with water
Conclusions:
MIZULAN FL-80 is considered ‘not highly flammable’ in contact with water.
Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Type of information:
other: statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
16 March 2010 - 14 June 2010
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Remarks:
The EU method was followed. Based on the molecular structure a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.13 (Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)

None of the components of the test substance does contain groups that might lead to ignition in contact with air. Moreover the test substance was handled under normal laboratory conditions during NOTOX project 493059. It demonstrated that the test substance does not ignite in contact with air.

Interpretation of results:
other: non pyrophoric
Conclusions:
MIZULAN FL-80 has no pyrophoric properties.

It demonstrated that the test substance does not ignite spontaneously in contact with water.

None of the components of the test substance does contain groups that might lead to ignition in contact with air. Moreover the test substance was handled under normal laboratory conditions during other tests. It demonstrated that the test substance does not ignite in contact with air.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available data, the reaction mass does not have to be classified for flammability according to CLP Regulation 1272/2008.
