Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The test substance is not a readily combustible solid in the sense of Guideline EEC/79/831 test A.10.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008) powdered, granular or pasty substances or mixtures (except powders of metals or metal alloys — see 2.7.2.2 of the CLP Regulation) shall be classified as readily combustible solids when the time of burning of one or more of the test runs, performed in accordance with the test method described in Part III, sub-section 33.2.1, of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, is less than 45 seconds or the rate of burning is more than 2.2 mm/s.

The sample burns with difficulty and is not observed flame spreading during flammability tests, the substance can be considered "not flammable" and no classification is warranted under the CLP Regulation.
