Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
August 2016
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Test N.1 (Test method for readily combustible solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Appearance: Coarse, white powder
Preparation: Tested as received
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

Results of Preliminary Screening Test:

Rate of burning (over 200 mm): N/A

Comments: Sample melted when flame was applied; does not ignite.

From the preliminary screening test, the sample was seen to burn in a time >2 minutes and therefore no further testing is required.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
Not a readily combustible substance.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is not classified as a flammable solid as in a preliminary screening test the substance did not ignite.
