Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: The test item could not be ignited by the flame of a gas burner within a 4 minute test period.

The test substance could not be ignited, although it emitted yellow sparks and melted in contact with the ignition source. After removal of the ignition source, no more sparks were observed.

The molten test substance turned dark brown (original colour: yellow / green).

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test substance could not be ignited, although it emitted yellow sparks and melted in contact with the ignition source. After removal of the ignition source, no more sparks were observed. The molten test substance turned dark brown (original colour: yellow I green). In conclusion, the test item is not classified because GHS criteria are not met.

Additional information

In a test conducted according to EU Method A.10 the test substance could not be ignited, although it emitted yellow sparks and melted in contact with the ignition source. After removal of the ignition source,  no more sparks were observed. The molten test substance turned dark brown (original colour: yellow I green). In conclusion, the test item is not classified because GHS criteria are not met.The substance is not classified according to the criteria of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) and the Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), because the criteria were not met.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is not classified according to the criteria of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) and the Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), because the criteria were not met.
