Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
Key result
Test procedure:
other: 200 mm of the train
Burning time:
4 min
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
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, no ignition or burning of the solid was observed. Hence, the powder should not be classified as a readily combustible solid according to Division 4.1 of the UN regulations for transportation of dangerous goods.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flammability of the test substance according to EU Method A.10. Under the study conditions, no ignition or burning of the solid was observed. Hence, the powder should not be classified as a readily combustible solid according to Division 4.1 of the UN regulations for transportation of dangerous goods (Mertens, 2016).
