flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
28 March 2017 to 30 March 2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
0
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
Remarks:
measured over a 4 minutes period

A pile of substance failed to ignite during the 2 minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied.  A small amount of grey fumes were observed after the Bunsen flame was removed.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
the substance is not flammable
Executive summary:

In a test according to EC A.10, no ignition of the substance was observed in a preliminary test. Therefore the substance is considered non-flammable.

Description of key information

In a test according to EC A.10, no ignition of the substance was observed in a preliminary test. During handling and use it was deduced that the substance is not flammable in contact with water and is not pyrophoric. Therefore the substance is considered non-flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the outcome of the tests and experience when handling the substance, no classification according to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 is considered necessary.
