Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

Results:

Preliminary screening test:

The pile ignited with an orange flame which self-extinguished 20 seconds after the Bunsen flame was removed without propagating combustion.

The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The flammability (solids) for SLI (76) Stripped was determined by measuring the burning rate of test item prepared as a pile of set dimensions.  Testing was conducted using Method A10 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC). The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.
