Description of key information

The test substance did not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smoldering, which means that it is not considered as highly flammable and that no further testing is required.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

In Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance,several examples of chemical groups associated with Pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are given. The registered substance does not contain any of these chemical groups. Therefore, based on structure, this substance does not have Pyrophoricity properties nor is it flammable on contact with water.

In the screening test the gas flame was applied for 2 minutes to one end of the substance

train, but no ignition and no propagation of combustion occurred. Only melting took place of

that part of the substance that was exposed to the flame. This means that the substance is

not considered as highly flammable and that no further testing is required.
