Any other information on results incl. tables

Upon applying the flame, the material quickly melted and formed a molten pool on the flame proof mat. Continued application of the flame on the pool and the solid resulted in no ignition. After 2 minutes of attempted ignition the flame was removed. A section of approximately 3 cm in length had melted and spread across the mat.

As no ignition occurred within the specified 2 minute time limit, the verdict is thus that the material is not highly flammable and no rate test is required.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

Method

Sample of Lanfa 2 was subjected to the flammability preliminary screening test as outlined in Method A.10 pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and the council on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). If the preliminary test resulted in and indication of high flammability, then the burning rate test as included in Method A.10 would be carried out.

Result

Upon applying the flame, the material quickly melted and formed a molten pool on the flame proof mat. Continued application of the flame on the pool and the solid resulted in no ignition. After 2 minutes of attempted ignition the flame was removed. A section of approximately 3 cm in length had melted and spread across the mat.

As no ignition occurred within the specified 2 minute time limit, the verdict is thus that the material is not highly flammable and no rate test is required.

Conclusion

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