Key result
Test procedure:
other: not specified
Remarks on result:
other: Benzimidazole (CAS No. 51-17-2) 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:
Benzimidazole (CAS No. 51-17-2) 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 Benzimidazole (CAS No. 51-17-2) is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Benzimidazole (CAS No. 51-17-2) was considered as non-flammable.
Executive summary:

Benzimidazole (CAS No. 51-17-2) 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 Benzimidazole (CAS No. 51-17-2) is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Benzimidazole (CAS No. 51-17-2) was considered as non-flammable.
