Any other information on results incl. tables

Preparations Before the Test:

The sample was filled into a mould. Then the mould was dropped three times from a height of 2 cm onto a solid surface and the mould was filled up again. The lateral limitations were removed and the excess substance scraped off. A non-combustible and non-porous plate was placed on top of the mould. This was inverted and the mould removed.

Preliminary Test:

The flame from a gas burner was applied to one end of the powder train until the powder ignited or for a maximum of 2 minutes if there is no ignition. The test was performed two times.

Main Test:

Based on the results of the preliminary test no further testing was required.


In the preliminary test the test itemcould not be ignited just charred. Based on the results of the preliminary test, no main test was performed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
The test item could not be ignited just charred. Therefore, the substance is considered not to be highly flammable.
Executive summary:

Two parallel flammability tests were performed. The tests were negative.

The test item is not highly flammable in the conditions of this test.
