From the preliminary screening test the sample was seen to briefly ignite and therefore no further testing is required.

As the material was moisture-sensitive and testing under relative low humidity conditions was not possible, the testing performed was carried out as quickly as possible. The material was not observed to undergo physical changes caused by atmospheric moisture.

Initially on heating, the sample melted to an off-white liquid and ignited with a pale blue flame when in contact with the ignition source. No propagation of this reaction was observed.

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Conclusions:
It has been determined that Amides, C12-18 (even-numbered), N-[3-(dimethylamino)propyl], N'-oxides should not be classified as a readily combustible solid of UN Class 4, Division 4.1. No propagation of this reaction was observed.
