Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

A.10: The test item is not a highly flammable solid in the sense of the consolidated version of Council Directive 67/548/EEC Annex V, Method A.10 (Council Directive 92/69/EEC).

A.11: In accordance with Regulation No 1907/2006 Annex XI a test according to A.11 (flammability; gases) is not considered to be required, since the substance SymWhite 377 is a solid powder with a melting point of about 79°C and a boiling range of 365°C- 368°C, and therefore not a gas at room temperature.

 

A.12: In accordance with Regulation No 1907/2006 Annex XI a test according to A.12 (flammability; contact with water) is not considered to be required, because SymWhite 377 does not contain groups that might lead to a reaction with water or damp air, leading to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable.

 

A.13: In accordance with Regulation No 1907/2006 Annex XI a test according to A.13 (pyrophoric properties of solids and liquids) is not considered to be required, since the substance SymWhite 377 is stable at ambient temperature. The substance does not contain any chemical group that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming in contact with air at room temperature (circa 20°C). Furthermore, experience in handling shows that the substance does not ignite in contact with air.
