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

Findings

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. Hence, the test item was classified as not highly flammable and no determination of burning rate was necessary.

Conclusions:
The test item FAT 92348/B TE should be considered as not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

Flammability potential of the test substance was investigated in a study conducted according to EU Method A.10. The 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. Hence, the test item FAT 92348/B TE should be considered as not highly flammable.

Description of key information

The test item FAT 92348/B TE should be considered as not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Flammability potential of the test substance was investigated in a study conducted according to EU Method A.10. The 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. Hence, the test item FAT 92348/B TE should be considered as not highly flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

FAT 92348/B TE was considered as not highly flammable, hence no classification as per criteria of the Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 is required.
