Sample ignited and burned only in the place of applying the flame of burner. The flame was extinguished immediately after taking off the flame of burner. Time of applying the flame of burner: 30, 60, 120 s. Result: NEGATIVE.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item is not highly flammable according to test A.10. criteria.
Executive summary:

A flammability (solids) test was performed according to EU method A.10 (GLP study). Sample ignited and burned only in the place of applying the flame of burner. The flame was extinguished immediately after taking off the flame of burner. Time of applying the flame of burner was 30, 60, 120 s. The test item is not highly flammable according to test A.10. criteria.

Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
8 July 2015 - 9 July 2015
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Key result
Test procedure:
step 1
step 2
step 3
step 4
Remarks on result:
no reaction with water observed

Stage I – the test sample placed in a flask with distilled water

Observations: there was no released gases, no signs of reaction

Stage II – the test sample placed on the filter paper floating on the surface of distilled water

Observations: there was no released gases, no signs of reaction

Stage III – the test substance formed into a cone with distilled water added dropwise

Observations: there was no released gases, no signs of reaction

Stage IV – measuring the rate of emission of gas in contact with distilled water

Observations: there was no released gases, no signs of reaction

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Thes test item does not emit flammable gases in contact with water.
Executive summary:

A study to determine the flammability in contact with water was carried out according to EU Method A.12 (GLP study). No release of gases nor sign of self-ignition was observed in any of the stage tested. Thes test item does not emit flammable gases in contact with water.

Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

Flammability for solids: Key study: Test method EU Method A.10. GLP study. The test item is not highly flammable.
Flammability in contact with water: Key study: Test method EU Method A.12. GLP study. The test item does not emit flammable gases in contact with water.
Pyrophoricity: Data waiving (other justification): The test was not performed experimentally because practical experience exists at the sponsor and the test facility, e.g. when handling small amounts of the test substance repeatedly in air during testing. The test substance is therefore regarded as not being pyrophoric.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Flammability for solids:

Key study: A flammability (solids) test was performed according to EU Method A.10 (GLP study). The test item is not highly flammable according to test A.10. criteria.

Flammability in contact with water:

Key study: A study to determine the flammability in contact with water was carried out according to EU Method A.12 (GLP study). The test item does not emit flammable gases in contact with water.

Pyrophoricity:

Data waiving (other justification): The test was not performed experimentally because practical experience exists at the sponsor and the test facility, e.g. when handling small amounts of the test substance repeatedly in air during testing. The test substance is therefore regarded as not being pyrophoric.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on available data, the substance is not classified for flammability according to CLP Regulation (EC) no. 1272/2008.
