- Batch no.: 70500102
- Appearance: Dark green powder
- Homogeneity: Homogeneous

Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

- Safety pre-test: The test item melted to a black liquid and then evaporated.

- Preliminary screening test: In the preliminary screening test following the EU and the UN method, the test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. The test item melted to a black liquid and then evaporated slightly greenish.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met

Description of key information

The test item was determined to be non-flammable as no ignition occurred in a preliminary flammability screening test. The substance does not react with water to emit flammable gases. Furthermore, the substance has no pyrophoric or self-heating properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information, classification on flammability is not warranted in accordance with EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation No. (EC) 1272/2008.
