Executive summary:

A study was performed to assess the flammability of Captan (technical grade).

Method no.: EEC A10 Flammability

Test Result: Not flammable

Description of key information

Captan is not flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

not classified

Additional information

Captan (technical grade) melted but failed to ignite.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The classification of the test substance is harmonized within the EU according to EU regulation No 1272/2008. Captan is not classified as being flammable. According to additional study results on explosiveness and auto flammability no physical properties leading to classification are measured.
