comparable to guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source
GLP compliance:
not specified
Specific details on test material used for the study:

Key result
Remarks on result:
other: 2-furoic acid not ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C was brought in contact with it.
Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
2-furoic acid does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that 2-furoic acid is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 2-furoic acid was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
Executive summary:

2-furoic acid does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that  2-furoic acid is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus  2-furoic acid was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
