Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2014
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no
Test procedure:
burning time over 250 mm for metal powders or metal alloys
Burning time:
ca. 2 min
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:
FAT 93450/Z should be considered as not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

The flammability test was carried out with FAT 93450/Z as per EU Method A.10. The test item arranged as a 250 mm pile, did not ignite when subjected to a flame from a teclu burner for 2 minutes. Hence, FAT 93450/Z should be considered as not highly flammable.

Description of key information

The flammability test was carried out with FAT 93450/Z as per EU Method A.10. The test item, arranged as a 250 mm pile, did not ignite when subjected to a flame from a teclu burner for 2 minutes. Hence, FAT 93450/Z should be considered as not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

FAT 93450/Z TE was considered to be not flammable, hence it does not warrant classification for flammability according to the criteria of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
