Description of key information

Non flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

The test was performed according to internationally accepted testing method A.10. The test item did not catch fire. The substance did not propagate burning of a 200 mm length of the strip in less than 4 minutes, therefore burning rate test did not need to be performed.

Furthermore evidences connected to the long experience in handling of the substance confirm that no flammable properties have never been observed and reported up to now in the usual conditions of production, stock, transport and use.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), 2.7 section, flammable solids, powdered, granular or pasty substances or mixtures shall be classified as readily combustible solids when the time of burning of one or more of the test runs, performed in accordance with the test method described in Part III, sub-section 33.2.1, of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, is less than 45 seconds or the rate of burning is more than 2.2 mm/s.

 

In the flammability test performed the item did not propagate burning of a 200 mm length of the strip in less than four minutes, therefore the substance resulted non flammable.

 

In conclusion, according to the CLP Regulation (EC n. 1272/2008) the substance is classified as NON flammable.
