Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is completely molten at 160°C
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
October 9-12, 2015
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
GLP compliance:
no
Test procedure:
burning rate test over 100 mm length
Remarks on result:
other: During the 4 minutes test period only 10 mm of the substance burned.

During the 4 minutes test period only 10 mm of the substance burned.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The test substance is not flammable.
Executive summary:

The test substance was formed into a powder strip 250 mm long and a flame held to it for 2 minutes to ignite it. The test substance did not ignite, and only 10 mm of the strip was burned. The test substance is not flammable.

Description of key information

not flammable
no pyrophoricity
no flammability on contact with water

no self-heating

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Based on flammability result the test substance is a non flammable solid.

Based on experience in handling and use and the chemical structure pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected.

The substance is a solid with a low melting point (< 160 °C).

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:the substance is a non flammable solid.

Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected.
