Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2016-03-16 to 2016-04-05
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Key result
Test procedure:
step 1
step 2
step 3
step 4
Remarks on result:
no reaction with water observed
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The substance has been determined to be non-hazardous as no gases were evolved in any of the four steps.
Executive summary:

The determination was carried out using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.12 Flammability (Contact with water of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

The substance is considered hazardous if:

• Spontaneous ignition takes place in any step of the procedure, or

• A flammable gas is evolved at a rate greater than 1l/kg of the test item per hour.

The substance has been determined to be non-hazardous as no gases were evolved in any of the four steps.

Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2016-03-16 to 2016-04-05
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
120 s
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

The pile failed to ignite during the 2 minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test. In conclusion, the substance has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The substance is not considered as highly flammable and no further testing is required.
Executive summary:

The substance is not highly flammable, using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.10 Flammability (Solids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
