Materials and methods

Test guideline
according to guideline
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
During study plan preparation the test item was identified by Safelink SPM-01 only. Subsequently a batch number (G150201) and appearance (colorless to slightly yellow powder) were provided. Thisdidn't affect the integrity or validity of the study.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)

Results and discussion

Flammable solids
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

Any other information on results incl. tables

Preliminary Screening Result

The pile blackened and glowed red but failed to ignite during the 2 minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied.

The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

Not highly flammable, using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.10 Flammability (Solids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
