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: Failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.

Any other information on results incl. tables

The pile failed to ignite during the 2 minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
A preliminary screening test failed to ignite the sample. Copper sulphide is therefore not considered to be highly flammable.
