Results and discussion

Flammable solids
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
Remarks:
or specified in description of method (migrated information)
Remarks on result:
other: The flame does not propagate 200 mm in 2 minutes, so the burning rate test was not performed.
Pyrophoric solids
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state (migrated information).
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)
Remarks:
corresponding to 'no' in migrated source record. | Remarks: | Additional remarks: According to manufacturing/handling experiences.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information Localised combustions, glowing and smoking. Rapid extiction, when the platinum wire is removed. The flame does not propagate 200 mm in 2 minutes.
Conclusions:
Localised combustions, glowing and smoking. Rapid extiction, when the platinum wire is removed. The flame does not propagate 200 mm in 2 minutes. The test substance should not be considered as flammable and no further testing is required. Based on this results obtained, the test substance is considered "non flammable".
