Description of key information

The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flammability (solids) was determined by measuring the burning rate of test item prepared as a pile of set dimensions. Testing was conducted using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A10 Flammability (Solids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

The pile melted then ignited and burnt with a yellow flame which self-extinguished after 10 seconds without propagating combustion. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

 

The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.

The test item therefore does not meet the criteria for classification for flammable solids.
