Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test over 100 mm length
Burning time:
ca. 4 min
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
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The results of the study revealed that the test item, Indole was non-flammable.
Executive summary:

The results of the study indicated that on applying the flame to the test item powder train for 2 min., the test item melted but did not ignite and not propagated combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering over the 200 mm of the powder train up to 4.0 minutes. Hence, the test item was considered to be non-flammable.

The results of the study revealed that the test item, Indole was non-flammable.
