Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
September 2009
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Version / remarks:
EC 440/2008
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: no ignition and no propagation of combustion occurred

In the screening test the gas flame was applied for 2 minutes to one end of the substance train, but no ignition and no propagation of combustion occurred. Only melting took place of that part of the substance that was exposed to the flame. This means that the substance is not considered a highly flammable and that no further testing is required.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The flammability of the substance was determined according to EC Regulation No 440/2008, Guideline A.10. The substance is not considered as highly flammable and no further testing is required.

Description of key information

The substance is not considered as highly flammable.
