Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion in the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

Introduction

The flammability of Trimethylolethane was determined by measuring the burning rate of test item prepared as a pile of set dimensions. Testing was conducted using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.10 Flammability (Solids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Method

A mould (250 mm long x 20 mm wide x 10 mm high) was loosely filled with test item (tested as received). A non-combustible, non-porous board was placed onto the mould which was then inverted. The mould was removed and an air-rich Bunsen burner flame applied to one end of the pile until ignition occurred.

Results

The test item melted and failed to ignite. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

Conclusion

The test item has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion in the preliminary screening test.
