Reference
Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
27.09.2012-16.10.2012
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard OECD test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: as mention below
Principles of method if other than guideline:
It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source (such as a burning match)
GLP compliance:
no
Interpretation of results:
other: non-flammable
Conclusions:
From the experimental values of flammability, test chemical ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 Deg C was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that test chemical is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 Deg C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, test chemical was considered non-flammable
Executive summary:

From the experimental values of flammability, test chemical ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 Deg C was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that test chemical is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 Deg C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, test chemical was considered non-flammable.

Description of key information

Thus it can be concluded that test chemical is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 Deg C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, test chemical was considered non-flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

From the experimental values of flammability, test chemical ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 Deg C was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that test chemical is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 Deg C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, test chemical was considered non-flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

From the experimental values of flammability, test chemical ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 Deg C was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that test chemical is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 Deg C.
