Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flammability of the test substance, according to EU Method A.10. The ignition source used was an air rich Bunsen burner flame. Test substance was brought in contact with flame and observed for ignition. Study involved six replicate test. Under the study conditions, test substance did not propagate combustion and was not classified as a highly flammable solid (Harpar, 1989).
