non flammable

Additional information

Flammability (solids)

The flammability (solids) of the test material was investigated in a GLP study which was conducted in accordance with the standardised guidelines EU Method A.10 and UN Method N.1. In the preliminary screening test the pile failed to ignite during the 2 minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the definitive test. The test material was therefore considered to be non-flammable.

 

Flammability (pyrophoric properties)

In accordance with section 1.5 of REACH Annex XI, the study does not need to be performed as based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties are not to be expected. Therefore testing for this endpoint has been omitted.

 

Flammability (contact with water)

In accordance with section 1.5 of REACH Annex XI, the study does not need to be performed as based on chemical structure water reactivity is not to be expected. Therefore testing for this endpoint has been omitted.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In line with Regulation 1272/2008, the test material does not meet the criteria for classification for flammability.
