Specific details on test material used for the study:
Appearance/Physical state: White solid
Batch: 7061415
Purity: 99.96%
Expiry date: 13 February 2019
Storage conditions: Room temperature in the dark
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
2 min
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The determination was carried out by measuring the burning rate of test item prepared as a pile of set dimensions, using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.10 Flammability (Solids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008. A mould (250 mm long x 20 mm wide x 10 mm high) was loosely filled with test item (tested as received). A non-combustible, non-porous board was placed onto the mould which was then inverted. The mould was removed and an air-rich Bunsen burner flame applied to one end of the pile for two minutes. The pile melted and failed to ignite during the 2 minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied. The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
