Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Polyperin Y could not sustain a burning reaction during the preliminary test (contact time of about 2 minutes). No main test was performed. In conclusion, Polyperin Y is not "highly flammable" according to the criteria of the guideline.
Executive summary:

The determination of the flammability of the test item was performed in accordance with the EEC Directive 92/69, Part A, Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties, A.10 "Flammability (solids)", EEC Publication No. L383, December 1992.

Polyperin Y could not sustain a burning reaction during the preliminary test (contact time of about 2 minutes). No main test was performed.

In conclusion, Polyperin Y could not sustain a burning reaction during the preliminary test and is therefore not "highly flammable" according to the criteria of the guideline.
