Any other information on results incl. tables

Preliminary screening test

The pile failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied.

The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

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

The flammability (solids) was determined by measuring the burning rate of test material prepared as a pile of set dimensions. Testing was conducted using Method A10 Flammability (Solids) of Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

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