Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
November 1-16, 2016
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
GLP compliance:
no
Specific details on test material used for the study:
SOURCE OF TEST MATERIAL
- Source and lot/batch No.of test material: LMD, 6912911B
- Expiration date of the lot/batch: September 11, 2018


STABILITY AND STORAGE CONDITIONS OF TEST MATERIAL
- Storage condition of test material: < 15 degrees C
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test over 100 mm length
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

After a two minute exposure to a flame only 10 mm of the powder train smoldered.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
LMD is not flammable.
Executive summary:

LMD was tested for flammability in an OECD Guideline 109 test. Despite being exposed to a flame for 2 minutes, the substance did not combust. LMD is therefore not flammable.

Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is completely molten at 160°C

Description of key information

LMD was tested for flammability in an OECD Guideline 109 test. Despite being exposed to a flame for 2 minutes, the substance did not combust. LMD is therefore not flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

no pyrophoricity

no flammability on contact with water

no self-heating

 

Additional information

Based on flammability result the test substance is a non flammable solid.

Based on experience in handling and use and the chemical structure pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not to be expected.

The substance is completely molten at 40.3°C, therefore it does not need to be considered for classification as self-heating.

Justification for classification or non-classification

LMD was tested for flammability in an OECD Guideline 109 test. Despite being exposed to a flame for 2 minutes, the substance did not combust. LMD is therefore not flammable.
