1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))

Specific details on test material used for the study:
None
Key result
Test procedure:
other: Pile of the test item observed for ignition for a period of 2 minutes
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

Preliminary screening test

The pile failed to ignite during the 2 minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied.

 

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The flammability of the test substance was evaluated in a study conducted according to EU Method A.10. In a preliminary screening test, the test substance was arranged in a 200 mm pile (powder train) and observed for ignition by exposing it to a flame over the period of 2 minutes. However, test substance did not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period, hence it was determined to be not highly flammable.

Description of key information

The test substance is not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flammability of the test substance was evaluated in a study conducted according to EU Method A.10. In a preliminary screening test, the test substance was arranged in a 200 mm pile (powder train) and observed for ignition by exposing it to a flame over the period of 2 minutes. However, test substance did not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period, hence it was determined to be not highly flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance was determined to be not highly flammable based on the findings of a flammability study, hence it does not require classification for flammability as per the CLP (Regulation 1272/2008) criteria.
