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

Key result
Remarks on result:
other: Prussian blue 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:
Prussian blue 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 Prussian blue is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Prussian blue was considered as non-flammable.
Executive summary:

Prussian blue 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 Prussian blue is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Prussian blue was considered as non-flammable.
