no
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Moisture Content Determination

Test purpose To determine the moisture content (as weight loss) of a sample by drying at atmospheric pressure
Apparatus Owing to the relatively low melting point the material was placed into a desiccator with desiccant at ambient temperature for approximately 19 hours.
Preparation Sample tested hand milled

Result Moisture content 0.36 % by weight (average of 2 runs)
Key result
Test procedure:
other: Preliminary Screening Test
Moisture (wt %):
0.36
Remarks on result:
other: The sample melted on contact with the ignition source and ignited with a medium size flame, but no propagation was observed
Interpretation of results:
other: not classified based on EU GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The sample melted on contact with the ignition source and ignited with a medium size flame, but no propagation was observed.
Executive summary:

The test is conducted in accordance with the procedure described in Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A Test A10. The test was not conducted according to GLP.

The sample melted on contact with the ignition source and ignited with a medium size flame, but no propagation was observed. Therefore the substance is classified as not highly flammable.

Description of key information

The test is conducted in accordance with the procedure described in EU Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A Test A10. The test was not conducted according to GLP.

The sample melted on contact with the ignition source and ignited with a medium size flame, but no propagation was observed. Therefore the substance is classified as not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The sample melted on contact with the ignition source and ignited with a medium size flame, but no propagation was observed. Therefore the substance is classified as not highly flammable.
