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: no ignition observed
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.
Pyrophoric liquids
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.

Any other information on results incl. tables

Upon heating the sample melted to a clear liquid with no flaming or propagation observed.

From the preliminary screening test the sample was seen not to ignite and therefore no further testing is required.

Substance is classified as 'Not Highly Flammable'

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: Not Highly Flammable
Conclusions:
C26-C28 Alpha Olefin can be classified as 'Not Highly Flammable'
Executive summary:

On the basis of negative results from a screening test performed both to a standard guideline and according to GLP C26-C28 Alpha Olefin can be classified as 'Not Highly Flammable'
