Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
17 September 2009 to 18 September 2009
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Study conducted in compliance with agreed protocols, with no or minor deviations from standard test guidelines and/or methodological deficiencies, which do not affect the quality of the relevant results. The study report was conclusive and done to a valid guideline.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no

During the preliminary screening test, the pile failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied. The negative results of the screening test negated the need to perform the main test.

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test material has been deemed to be non flammable as it failed to ignite during the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The flammability (solids) of the test material was determined in a study which was conducted in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.10.

During the preliminary screening test, the pile failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied. The negative results of the screening test negated the need to perform the main test. The test material was therefore determined to be non-flammable under the conditions of the test.

non flammable

Additional information

Flammability (Solids)

The flammability of the test material was determined in a study which was conducted in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.10.

During the preliminary screening test, the pile failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied. The negative results of the screening test negated the need to perform the main test. The test material was therefore determined to be non-flammable under the conditions of the test.

Pyrophoric properties

In accordance with section 1.5 of REACH Annex XI, the study does not need to be performed as based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties are not to be expected.

Flammability in contact with water

In accordance with section 1.5 of REACH Annex XI, the study does not need to be performed as based on chemical structure water reactivity is not to be expected.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex I, Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, the substance does not require classification with respect to flammability.
