Specific details on test material used for the study:
SOURCE OF TEST MATERIAL
- Source and lot/batch No.of test material: Lot 38022 (drum 1)

Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: No propagation of combustion along the 200 mm length of the pile within 4 minutes was observed

The flame of the gas burner did ignite the test item pile. The test item melted, burned with a blue flame and turned into a yellow residue. Grey smoke was observed. After removal of the ignition source, the flame extinguished after 1 second and no propagation of combustion was observed.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
FBSEE diol is not highly flammable as determined by EU Method A.10.
Executive summary:

The flammability of FBSEE diol was evaluated according to EU Method A.10 "Flammability (solids)", and UN No. ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5 Part 3. Results of the preliminary test indicated that the main study did not have to be performed. This test was performed following EU guidance and was GLP compliant; therefore it is considered reliable without restriction.

Description of key information

FBSEE diol is not highly flammable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In flammability testing (EU Method A.10), FBSEE diol extinguished and did not propagate combustion after the gas burner ignition source was removed. In addition, FBSEE diol does not contain any metals, transition metals, boron, or silicon, and the structure does not include moieties that would result in a reaction with water, air, or damp air leading to emanation of flammable gases. The structure does not contain any chemically unstable or highly reactive groups that might lead to spontaneous ignition.

Justification for classification or non-classification

CLP criteria not met
