Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC n. 1272/2008) powdered, granular or pasty substances or mixtures (except powders of metals or metal alloys —2.7.2.2) 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.

 

Since combustion was observed during the flammability test, the substance has to be classified as flammable according to the CLP classification criteria. (H228 Flammable solid; Category 2)
