Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: GLP Compliant, guideline study, available as unpublished report, acceptable without restrictions
Reference:
Composition 1
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Test N.1 (Test method for readily combustible solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Test material information:
Composition 1
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
Remarks:
or specified in description of method (migrated information)
Burning time:
142 s

Train ignited with orange flame and sparks leaving charred remains.

Conclusions:
Although the test item propagated combustion during the screening test the time take to burn through the 200 mm length exceeded 2 minutes. Therefore, the test item is not classified as a readily combustible solid under Division 4.1.
Executive summary:

This is a GLP compliant, guideline study considered suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.

Although the test item propagated combustion during the screening test the time take to burn through the 200 mm length exceeded 2 minutes. Therefore, the test item is not classified as a readily combustible solid under Division 4.1.

Description of key information

Although palladium (II) acetate propagated combustion during the screening test the time taken to burn through the 200 mm length exceeded 2 minutes. Therefore, palladium (II) acetate is not classified as a readily combustible solid under Division 4.1.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

O’Connor and Woolley (2011) is a GLP compliant study followin UN method N1 and is considered suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. Although palladium (II) acetate propagated combustion during the screening test the time take to burn through the 200 mm length exceeded 2 minutes. Therefore, palladium (II) acetate is not classified as a readily combustible solid under Division 4.1.
