Composition 1
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
< 5 s

During the experiment, the substance significantly swell and char, without the formation of any flame.

Thus, the experiment result can be considered as negative and the substance can be considered non flammable.

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Non flammable.
Executive summary:

The test was performed according to internationally accepted testing method A.10. During the experiment, the substance significantly swell and char, without the formation of any flame.

Thus, the experiment result can be considered as negative and the substance can be considered non flammable.

Conclusion

Non flammable.

Description of key information

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), 2.7 section, flammable solids, powdered, granular or pasty substances or mixtures shall be classified as readily combustible solids when the time of burning of one or more of the test runs, performed in accordance with the test method described in Part III, sub-section 33.2.1, of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, is less than 45 seconds or the rate of burning is more than 2.2 mm/s.

Acid Green 016 did not propagate burning of a 200 mm length of the strip in less than four minutes, therefore it is expected to be non flammable.

In conclusion, according to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008) Acid Green 016 does not meet the criteria to be classified as flammable.
