other: Neither ignition, nor propagation were observed.

Preliminary test

Experimental conditions

  Humidity                                 About 46%

Room temperature              About 25 °C

 

Assay No. 1

The test item melted and formed a colourless limpid liquid which make brown with the time. Neither ignition, nor propagation were observed.

 

Assay No. 2

The same observations as for the assay No. 1 were recorded.

 

Main test

Taking into account the results obtained during the preliminary test, no main test was performed.

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Ethylvanillin is not flammable according to the EC A10 method.
Executive summary:

In a GLP study (Défitraces, 2011), Ethylvanillin was tested for its flammability according to the EC A10 method.

During the preliminary test, the test item melted and formed a colourless limpid liquid which make brown with the time. Neither ignition, nor propagation were observed.

In these conditions, taking into account the results obtained in the preliminary test, no main test was performed.

The test item was not considered as highly flammable under our experimental conditions.

Description of key information

Ethylvanillin was not flammable according to the EC A10 method.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Only one GLP study (Défitraces, 2011) was available and was selected as key study.

In this study, Ethylvanillin was not considered as highly flammable under the experimental conditions, according to the EC A10 method.
