Detailed results:

05 % test substance, 95 % cellulose, max. (6 tests) burning rate 2.0 mm/s

10 % test substance, 90 % cellulose, max. (6 tests) burning rate 2.1 mm/s

20 % test substance, 80 % cellulose, max. (6 tests) burning rate 2.0 mm/s

30 % test substance, 70 % cellulose, max. (6 tests) burning rate 2.1 mm/s

40 % test substance, 60 % cellulose, max. (6 tests) burning rate 1.7 mm/s

Reaction (all tests): steady burning with flame throughout the whole mass.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

A guideline study is available which is considered to be reliable and adequate, and is carried forward for use in risk assessment, classification and labelling.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance does not meet the criteria for classification under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, Annex I, part 2, 2.1.4. The available data are considered reliable and suitable for classification.
