Not highly flammable
Executive summary:

The flammability (solids) was determined in accordance with EU Method A.10, by forming the test substance into a rope and applying an ignition source. The test substance melted on application of the ignition source and burned for approximately 30 seconds with a yellow flame before extinguishing. There was no propagation along the test pile. No further testing was necessary. The test substance was found not to be highly flammable.

Description of key information

The test substance was not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information
