Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
17.01.2008 - 02.05.2008
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
Remarks:
or specified in description of method
Burning time:
> 0 - < 10 s
Remarks on result:
other: not highly flammable

Since ignition did not occur within 2 min, the test item was classified as not highly flammable, and no determination of burning rate was necessary

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance is to be cosidered as not flammable.
Executive summary:

Not flammable, no formation of flammable gas in contact with water, no ignition in contact with air.

Description of key information

The substance is to be cosidered as not flammable.


Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The substance is not flammable, there is no formation of flammable gas in contact with water, and no ignition in contact with air.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is a solid, therefore the classification criteria for flammable gases, flammable aerosols, flammable liquids, and pyrophoric liquids have not to be taken into consideration.

The substance does not meet the classification criteria for a flammable solid, because the substance is neither readily combustible nor causes or contributes to fire through friction.

The substance does not meet the classification criteria for a pyrophoric solid, because it is not liable to ignite after coming into contact with air.

The substance does not meet the classification criteria for a substance which, in contact with water, emits flammable gases, because by interaction with water it is not liable to become spontaneously flammable or to give off flammable gases
