Any other information on results incl. tables

In the preliminary screening test following the EU and UN method, the test item was heated with the flame of a gas burner. The test item charred, expanded slightly and some flying sparks were observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes. The test item glowed on after the flame of the burner was removed. After cooling down, the test item had turned black.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
In the preliminary screening test the test item was heated with the flame of a gas burner. No ignition occurred within two minutes. Therefore, the test item should be considered as not highly flammable.
