Study period:
Feb. 2018 - Jun. 2018
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Version / remarks:
of 30 May 2008 published on 31 May 2008
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Test N.1 (Test method for readily combustible solids)
Version / remarks:
Rev. 6, 2015
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
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

Preliminary Screening Test

In the preliminary screening test following the EU and the UN method, the test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. The test item changed colour from white to yellow.

Afterwards the test item charred. No ignition occurred within two minutes.

Results

No ignition was observed throughout the course of the test.

The test item should be considered as not highly flammable (for EU regulations) and as non-flammable solid (for UN regulations).

Interpretation of results:
other: EU GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No ignition was observed throughout the course of the test.
The test item should be considered as not highly flammable (for EU regulations) and as non-flammable solid (for UN regulations).
Executive summary:

In the preliminary screening test following the EU Method A.10 and the UN method N1 under GLP-conditions, the test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. The test item discoloured from white to yellowwhite.

Afterwards the test item charred. No ignition occurred within two minutes.

Therefore, the test item should be considered as not highly flammable (for EU regulations), non-flammable solid (for UN regulations).

Description of key information

In the preliminary screening test following the EU Method A.10 and the UN method N1 under GLP-conditions, the test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. The test item discoloured from white to yellowwhite.

Afterwards the test item charred. No ignition occurred within two minutes.

Therefore, the test item should be considered as not highly flammable (for EU regulations), non-flammable solid (for UN regulations).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

In the preliminary screening test following the EU and the UN method, the test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. The test item discoloured from white to yellowwhite.

Afterwards the test item charred. No ignition occurred within two minutes.

Therefore, the test item should be considered as not highly flammable (for EU regulations) an non-flammable solid (for UN regulations).
