Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

Introduction

The flammability (solids) of FSM-003B was determined using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A10 Flammability (solids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

 Results

The pile failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied. The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

Conclusion

The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it failed to ignite in the preliminary screening test.
