Results and discussion

Flammable solids
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
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
Remarks:
No propagation of combustion of the test substance along 200 mm length of the pile within 4 minutes was observed. According to the guidelines, performance of the burning rate test is not required. Based on the results obtained, the test substance is considered ‘not highly flammable’.

Any other information on results incl. tables

In contact with the flame of the gas burner the test substance melted, emitted yellow sparks and turned into a black residue. Grey smoke was observed. After removal of the ignition source, no propagation of combustion of the test substance was observed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: Not highly flammable
Conclusions:
The preliminary screening test was performed for the determination of the flammability of 1574 CETONA.
No propagation of combustion of the test substance along 200 mm length of the pile within 4 minutes was observed. According to the guidelines, performance of the burning rate test is not required. Based on the results obtained, the test substance is considered ‘not highly flammable’.
