Preliminary screening test

 

The pile melted and ignited with a small yellow flame which self extinguished after 3 seconds without propagating combustion.

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

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test. Testing was conducted using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A10 Flammability (Solids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
