Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The substance has not to be classified as
readily combustible solid (class 4.1) acc. UN transport classification
flammable solid acc. EU-GHS/CLP (EG1272/2008)
readily flammable solid acc. EG 449/2008
Executive summary:

The substance was tested for flammability according to VDI 2263 sheet 1. When applying a flame as ignition source the substance melted and no ignition was observed. When using a hot platinum wire as ignition source the sample also melted. After tipping the platinum wire into the molten mass a short ignition was observed but no propargation of a flame occured.

The combustion behaviour of the substance can be characterized with Ignition Number 2: short flame and rapid extinction.
