Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
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
BIT is not considered as highly flammable.
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The substance is not considered as highly flammable.
Executive summary:

The flammability was determined according to EU Method A.10. The test item is formed to an unbroken strip or powder train about 250 mm long. A preliminary screening test is performed to determine if, on ignition by gas flame, propagation by burning with flame or smouldering occurs. If propagation over 200 mm of the train occurs within a specified time a full test programme to determine the burning rate has to be carried out. The substance is not considered as highly flammable.

Description of key information

The flammability was determined according to EU Method A.10 (Roos, 2006).
