experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source.
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
GLP compliance:
not specified
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material :4-Nonylphenol, ethoxylated
- Molecular formula : (C2-H4-O)mult-C15-H24-O
- Molecular weight :264.406 g/mol
- Smiles notation : c1(ccc(OCCO)cc1)CCCCCCCCC

Key result
Test procedure:
other: not specified
Remarks on result:
other: 4-Nonylphenol, ethoxylated not ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C was brought in contact with it.
Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
4-Nonylphenol, ethoxylated does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that 4-Nonylphenol, ethoxylated is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 4-Nonylphenol, ethoxylated was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
Executive summary:

4-Nonylphenol, ethoxylated does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that  4-Nonylphenol, ethoxylated is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 4-Nonylphenol, ethoxylated was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
