Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
10th April 2018
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: The test item was observed to ignite and burn at point of contact with the burner flame. The flame propagated along 40 mm of the train in a total of 5 minutes. As the flame did not propagate along 200 mm of the train, no further testing was necessary.
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The test item was determined to be not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

The flammability of the test item was determined in an EU Method A.10 guideline study. The test item was observed to ignite and burn at point of contact with the burner flame. The flame propagated along a 40 mm length of the train in a total of 5 minutes. As the flame did not propagate along 200 mm of the train, no further testing was necessary. The test item was determined to be not highly flammable.

The study is a GLP compliant, guideline experimental study and is fully acceptable for this endpoint.

Description of key information

The test item was found to be not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

The flammability of the test item was investigated in an EC Method A.10 study. The study is a GLP compliant, guideline experimental study and is fully acceptable for assessment of this endpoint (Dunning 2018).

The test item was observed to ignite and burn at point of contact with the burner flame. The flame propagated along a 40 mm length of the train in a total of 5 minutes. As the flame did not propagate along 200 mm of the train, no further testing was necessary. The test item was determined to be not highly flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the results of a GLP-compliant study following a standard test guideline, the substance does not require classification as a flammable solid.
