Results and discussion

Flammable solids
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
Remarks:
or specified in description of method (migrated information)
Burning time:
0 s
Pyrophoric solids
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state (migrated information).
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)
Remarks:
corresponding to 'no' in migrated source record.
Pyrophoric liquids
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state (migrated information).
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)
Remarks:
corresponding to 'no' in migrated source record.

Any other information on results incl. tables

The test substance pile was observed critically for any combustion and/or propagation of combustion, either by burning with a flame or by smouldering. Other observations such as melting or change of colour were also noted.

Because the test substance did not ignite and propagate combustion over 200 mm within 4 minutes in the preliminary test, the main study was not required.

The flame of a gas burner not ignited the test substance pile. In contact with the flame, the test substance melted and turned transparent. After removal of the ignition source, no propagation of combustion (e.g. by smouldering) was observed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Because no burning with flame or smouldering over 200 mm within 4 minutes was observed, Corsair Clear #12 is considered not highly flammable.
