Description of key information

The test substance ignited and burned with a yellow flame, which extinguished immediately on removal of the ignition source. There was no propagation along the test pile. No further testing was necessary.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A package of physicochemical testing, including a determination of flammability, was performed by Huntingdon Life Sciences, UK, to determine certain physicochemical properties of the test substance. The method used for the flammability determination involved the use of a test mould and an ignition source. The study was conducted to EEC A10 Test Guidelines, and in accordance with GLP.

The test substance ignited and burned with a yellow flame, which extinguished immediately on removal of the ignition source. There was no propagation along the test pile. The test substance was not found to be highly flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

A flammability test was performed on the test substance, which was not found to be highly flammable. On the basis of this result, the test material does not require classification as flammable according to EC Directive 67/548/EEC.
