Test Information - Initial Steps

1.              A small quantity of the sample was placed in a trough of distilled water. It was noted if any gas generation or a spontaneous ignition occurred.

2.              A small quantity of the sample was placed in the centre of a filter paper which was floated on the surface of distilled water. It was noted if any gas generation or a spontaneous ignition occurred.

3.              A few drops of distilled water were added to a beaker with a small amount of sample. It was noted if any gas generation or a spontaneous ignition occurred.

Comments

Data logging during test runs 1 and 4 was interrupted. Results were therefore unreliable and have not been reported.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
For the initial tests, no gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed.
For the final test the generation of a flammable gas was less than 1 Litre/kg of the substance per hour. Under the EU Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A test A.12,the substance is therefore determined to be Non-Hazardous.
Executive summary:

The test is designed to determine the ability of a substance to emit flammable gases on contact with water by bringing it into contact with water under a variety of conditions.

For the initial tests, no gas generation or spontaneous ignitions were observed.

For the final test the generation of a flammable gas was less than 1 Litre/kg of the substance per hour.
Under the EU Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A test A.12,the substance is therefore determined to be Non-Hazardous.

Test Results for Filter Paper Test.

 Test number Ignition or No ignition  Charring or No charring  Observations 
 1  No ignition No charring  No reaction 
 2  No ignition No charring  No reaction 
 3  No ingnition No charring No reaction 

No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore Not Pyrophiric.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore not Pyrophoric.
Executive summary:

The test is designed to determine the ability of a solid or liquid to ignite on contact with air. The test is conducted in accordance with the procedure described in EU Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A test A.13.

No ignition or charring was observed during any test. The sample is therefore not Pyrophoric.

Description of key information

The test item is Non-Hazardous and not pyrophoric.
