flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
April 2012
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
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
ca. 196 - ca. 240 s
Remarks on result:
other: The flame extinguished by itself with only 1-2 cm progress. Hence full burning rate test was not needed.

The screening test resulted in a burning time of 3 minutes and 16 seconds, then the flame extinguished by itself with only 1-2 cm progress. The screening test was repeated once again. The sample burned for at least 4 minutes with a progress of only a few cm. Therefore the full burning rate test was not needed. The test substance is not considered as highly flammable.

Interpretation of results:
other: not classifed based on CLP criteria
Conclusions:
 Under the test conditions, the test substance was considered to be non-flammable.
Executive summary:

The flammability was determined according to EU Method A.10 (Kamp, 2012). The screening test resulted in a burning time of 3 minutes and 16 seconds or 4 minutes (on repetition), then the flame extinguished by itself with only 1-2 or few cm’s progress. Therefore the full burning rate test was not needed. Under the test conditions, the test substance was considered to be non-flammable.

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

C16-18 and C18-unsatd. TMAC was non flammable in a guideline test, thus no classification is required for this endpoint according to CLP criteria (Regulation EC 1272/2008).
