guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:

Specific details on test material used for the study:
Identification: FAT 40045/Z TE
Key result
Test procedure:
other: Preliminary study to check if the substacne is flammable
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

Safety Pre-Test

A small amount of the test item was heated on a magnesia groove with a gas burner. Glowing was observed. The test item showed no signs of ignition.

Preliminary screening test

The test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No ignition was observed throughout the course of the test. Hence, the test item FAT 40045/Z TE should be considered as not highly flammable
Executive summary:

FAT 40045/Z TE was tested for flammability potential as per guideline EU Method A.10. In a safety pre-test, small amount of the test item was heated on a magnesia groove with a gas burner. Glowing was observed but the test item did not show any signs of ignition.

Consequently, a screening test was performed. The test item prepared as a 250 mm long pile was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes. Hence, the test item FAT 40045/Z TE should be considered as not highly flammable.
