experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
25 July 2008 to 07 November 2008
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Study conducted to GLP in compliance with agreed protocols, with no or minor deviations from standard test guidelines and/or minor methodological deficiencies, which do not affect the quality of the relevant results. The study report was conclusive, done to a valid guideline, and the study was conducted under GLP conditions.

Remarks on result:
other: The test material failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.

Preliminary Screening Test

The test material pile failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen burner flame was applied. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.

Interpretation of results:
other: Not classified according to EU criteria
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the study, the test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The flammability (solids) of the test material was determined under GLP conditions and in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.10. The test material pile failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen burner flame was applied. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test. The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test. The test material was therefore concluded to be non-flammable.

Description of key information

Non- flammable, EU Method A.10, Atwal & Woolley (2008)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The flammability (solids) of the test material was determined under GLP conditions and in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.10. The study was assigned a reliability score of 1 in line with the principles for assessing data quality as defined by Klimisch (1997).

The test material pile failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen burner flame was applied. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test. The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test. The test material was therefore concluded to be non-flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex I, Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, the substance does not require classification with respect to flammability.
