Description of key information

A flammability screening test was performed by igniting a loosely-packed linear pile of DMT powder. Combustion self-extinguished without propagating along the pile. According to the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, dimethyl terephthalate is therefore classified as a non-readily combustible solid of Division 4.1 and further flammability testing is not required.
