Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From 31 January 2005 to 6 July 2005
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
GLP compliance
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Remarks:
(2 December 2002)
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
2 s
Moisture (wt %):
14.569
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

- Preliminary screening test

The pile ignited with a small blue/orange flame which self-extinguished 2 seconds after the Bunsen flame was removed without propagating combustion.

The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The determination of the flammability (solids) of Monofluoroethylene carbonate was performed by measuring the burning rate of test material prepared as a pile of set dimensions according to EU Method A.10, under GLP conditions. The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.

Description of key information

The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test substance was not deemed to be a flammable solid under standard guideline tests. It was also not deemend to be self-heating (low melting point) or pyrophoric/reactive with water releasing flammable gases based on the handling and use of the substance.
