EC number: 215-125-8
CAS number: 1303-86-2
From the preliminary screening test the
sample was seen not to ignite and therefore no further testing was
Initially the sample melted to a thick,
clear gel then partially glowed red while in contact with the ignition
source. No propagation of this reaction was observed.
The test item was assessed for its
flammability-properties in a GLP study according to EU Method A.10, UN
Manual of Tests and Criteria: Test N.1 (Test method for readily
combustible solids) and HSE Code of Physico-Chemical properties 1982.
The sample did not ignite. Initially the sample melted to a thick, clear
gel then partially glowed red while in contact with the ignition source.
No propagation of this reaction was observed.
Full test results:
The pyrophoric properties of the test item
were assessed in a GLP study according to UN Manual of Tests and
Criteria: Test N.2 (Test method for pyrophoric solids) and it was
determined that the test item should not be classified as a pyrophoric
Appearance before test: White crystalline
Appearance after test: The sample had
hardened to a solid mass with no change in its initial volume.
It was determined that the test substance
should be classified as not a self-heating substance of Class 4,
The self-heating properties of the the test
item were determined in a GLP study according to UN Manual of Tests and
Criteria: Test N.4 (Test method for self-heating substances). It was
observed that in appearance the test item changed from white crystalline
solid to a hardened solid mass with no change in its initial volume.
No self-ignition took place during testing.
The substance should be classified as not self-heating substance.
Max. rate of gas generation
The flammability of the substance which in
contact with water emits flammable gases was assessed in a GLP study
according to UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Test N.5 (Test method for
substances which in contact with water emit flammable gases). A slow
reaction with water but no spontaneous ignition of the evolved gas was
observed, therefore EU GHS criteria are not met and the test item is not
classified as a material of class 4.3 according to the UN
recommendations on the Transportation of Dangerous Goods.
Flammability, pyrophoric solids:
Flammability, self-heating substances:
Flammability, contact with water:
The substance was tested according to
"Recommendations on the TRANSPORT OF DANGEROUS GOODS - Manual of Tests
and Criteria - Part III. None of the classifiation criteria was met,
therefore there is no need to classify the substance, neither as
flammable, nor as pyrophoric, self-heating or as substance which in
contact with water emits flammable gases.
