Results and discussion

Flammable solids
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
Remarks:
or specified in description of method (migrated information)
Remarks on result:
other: The test item did not ignite in 2 minutes, so the burning rate test was not performed.
Pyrophoric solids
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state (migrated information).
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information no ignition
Conclusions:
There was no ignition at glowing platinum wire in 2 minutes, so the flame propagation test could not be carried out. The substance should not be considered as flammable and no further testing is required. Based on this results obtained, the test substance is considered "non flammable".
