Description of key information

Flammability of DD-lactide and LL-lactide was determined. Results are considered fully valid also for dilactide as dilactide is a mixture of D- and L-lactide isomers. The flame of the gas burner ignited the test substance pile. The test substance melted and burned with a blue flame. After removal of the ignition source, the flame extinguished immediately and no propagation of combustion was observed. Based on test results for DD-lactide and LL-lactide it is concluded that lactides are not highly flammable.
