Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Lot/batch No.: 407940
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
> 240 s
Remarks on result:
other: the flame extinguished by itself before reaching the reference mark of 200 mm
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
In a preliminary assay, it was observed that the propagation time for combustion over 200 mm was superior to 240 s. No further testing was required.
SEPISOL FAST YELLOW MG-F is not considered as highly flammable.
Executive summary:

A test to determine if Sepisol Fast Yellow MG-F is a flammable solid has been carried out according to the EU method A.10.

The test material is formed into a mould powder train of 250 mm length, 20 mm width and 10 mm height on a low heat-conducting base plate.

The powder train was ignited at one end with a micro burner (minimum diameter 5mm), ignition time of 2 minutes.

In a preliminary assay, it was observed, whether the combustion propagated over a distance of 200 mm within 4 minutes. If the time was longer than 4 minutes (240 s), no further testing was required according to guideline. It was observed that the propagation time was superior to 240 s. No further testing was required.

The sample was prepared under air, at room temperature.

It has been concluded that Sepisol Fast Yellow MG-F is not a highly flammable solid.
