Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

The determination was performed according to EEC Directive 92/69, A.17.

During the first main test the burning rates of test item /cellulose mixtures with a test item / cellulose ratio of 50% / 50% and 40% / 60% were found to be higher than the fastest barium nitrate / cellulose mixture containing 50% barium nitrate, indicating oxidizing properties of the test item.

To test whether the result of the first main is a false positive result, a second main test was performed using kieselguhr as an inert material instead of cellulose. The burning rates of the test item/kieselgur mixtures with a test item/kieselgur ratio of 50%/50 % and 40%/60% are higher than the fastest barium nitrate/cellulose mixture and higher than the fastest test item / cellulose mixtures. The results of the repeated testing with kieselguhr confirm, that the result of the first main test is a false positive result.

The test item has no oxidising properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the experimental data provided the substance is not considered to be classified as an oxidising material
