Diatomaceous earth:

Test 1 - The test material initially remained on the surface but gradually soaked in. There were no signs of any reaction and no fumes were observed.

Test 2 - The test material initially remained on the surface but gradually soaked in. There were no signs of any reaction and no fumes were observed.

Test 3 - The test material initially remained on the surface but gradually soaked in. There were no signs of any reaction and no fumes were observed.

Test 4 - The test material initially remained on the surface but gradually soaked in. There were no signs of any reaction and no fumes were observed.

Test 5 - The test material initially remained on the surface but gradually soaked in. There were no signs of any reaction and no fumes were observed.

Test - 6 The test material initially remained on the surface but gradually soaked in. There were no signs of any reaction and no fumes were observed.

Filter Paper

Test - 1 The test material initially remained on the filter paper before gradually soaking into the paper. There were no signs of any reaction, fumes, charring or ignition of the filter paper.

Test - 2 The test material initially remained on the filter paper before gradually soaking into the paper. There were no signs of any reaction, fumes, charring, or ignition of the filter paper.

Test - 3 The test material initially remained on the filter paper before gradually soaking into the paper. There were no signs of any reaction, fumes, charring, or ignition of the filter paper.

Interpretation of results:
other: non-flammable according to EU criteria
Conclusions:
The test material was determined to be non-pyrophoric.
Executive summary:

The pyrophoric properties of the test material have been determined using Method A13 Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of May 30 2008, in accordance with Council Directive 98.8/EC, Annex II.

The test material was determined to be non-pyrophoric.

Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

The pyrophoric properties of the test material have been determined using Method A13 Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of May 30 2008, in accordance with Council Directive 98.8/EC, Annex II.

The test material was determined to be non-pyrophoric.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex I, Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, the substance does not require classification with respect to flammability
