Any other information on results incl. tables

The pile ignited and burnt with a small yellow flame which self-extinguished 91 seconds after the Bunsen flame was removed, without propagating combustion.

The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: not highly flammable
Conclusions:
The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

The flammability (solids) was determined by measuring the burning rate of test material prepared as a pile of set dimensions.  Testing was conducted using Method A10 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

The test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm of the preliminary screening test.
