Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2014
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
not specified
GLP compliance:
no
Test procedure:
burning time over 250 mm for metal powders or metal alloys
Burning time:
2 min
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

Findings:

Safety Pre-Test:

A small amount of the test item was heated on a magnesia groove with a gas burner. Glowing was observed. The test item showed no signs of ignition.

Preliminary screening test:

The test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item FAT 20200/C should be considered as not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

This study was performed in order to determine the flammability FAT 20200/C according to EU method A.10 method. The test item was loosely filled into the mould. The mould was limited laterally by two metal plates. The mould was then dropped three times from a height of 2 cm onto a solid surface and then filled up again. The lateral limitations were removed and the excess substance was scraped off. The glass plate was placed on top of the mould, the apparatus was inverted and the mould removed.

The pile was arranged at right angle to the draught in the fume cupboard. The flame of the gas burner was used to ignite the pile at one end. Since ignition did not occur within two minutes, the test item was classified as not highly flammable and no determination of burning rate was necessary.

In conclusion, the test item FAT 20200/C should be considered as not highly flammable.

Description of key information

This study was performed in order to determine the flammability FAT 20200/C according to EU method A.10 method. The test substance when arranged as a 250 mm pile a nd exposed to a flame, failed to get ignited. Hence, FAT 20200/C was considered as not highly flammable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

As Acid Violet 109 is found to be not flammable, classification is not needed according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
