Description of key information

Sugar Factory Lime (SFL)  has been determined not to be auto flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The auto flammability of Sugar Factory Lime (SFL) was determined in a GLP study performed in accordance with EU Method A16 (Atwal and Tremain, 2010). A negative result was obtained which demonstrated that SFL is not auto flammable.

The autoflammability of SFL is supported by data on calcium carbonate from a GLP guideline study (Tremain et al, 2010) which indicates that calcium carbonate is not autoflammable.
