The study was conducted according to European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008 (A.17 Oxidizing properties of solids) . The maximum burning rate of the mixtures of the test item and cellulose (0.99 mm/s) was less than the maximum burning rate of the reference mixture of cellulose and barium nitrate (1.46 mm/s). Due to the fact that mixture of the test item with cellulose burned slower compared to the reference mixture it was concluded that the test item has no oxidizing properties.

The highest burning rate of 1.46 mm/s was found for the mixture with 55 wt. % oxidizer. Mixtures of the test item cellulose were prepared in between 5 and 90 wt. % of the test item and tested.

Interpretation of results:
other: no oxidising properties
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test item had no oxidizing properties in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, Method A.17.

Description of key information

The maximum burning rate of the mixtures of the test item and cellulose (0.99 mm/s) was less than the maximum burning rate of the reference mixture of cellulose and barium nitrate (1.46 mm/s). Due to the fact that mixture of the test item with cellulose burned slower compared to the reference mixture it was concluded that the test item has no oxidizing properties. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no
