In contact with the flame of the gas burner the test substance melted, emitted sparks and turned into a brown/black residue. After removal of the ignition source, no propagate combustion of the test substance was observed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The preliminary screening test was performed for the determination of the flammability of ASA404 C8. No propagate combustion of the test substance along 200 mm length of the pile within 4 minutes was observed. Based on this, the test substance was not considered as highly flammable.
