Results and discussion

Flammable solids
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test over 100 mm length
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

Any other information on results incl. tables

With the application of the test flame, the test substance charred to a black/ brown solid with the emission of white smoke. None of the test piles ignited.
