The heap of powder showed local glowing or burning without spread at 100 °C. The combustion class number (BZ) 3 was assigned.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test substance is non flammable (BZ 3). Therefore, the test substance is not a highly flammable solid according to regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
Executive summary:

The flammability of the test substance was evaluated by determination of the combustion class number ("Brennzahl" BZ). The test substance is non flammable (BZ 3).
