Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Mixture (%) Max. burning rate* (mm/s) Reaction
Test substance Cellulose
50 50 2.4 Steady burning with flame throughout the whole mass. The test substance melts under the conditions of the test.

*Max. burning rate of the reference mixture barium nitrate:cellulose (60:40) / 3.4 mm/s.

*Maximum burning rate: mixture with 60 % of product.

*(Max. burning rate test mixture)/(Max. burning rate reference mixture)=(3.2 mm/s)/(3.4 mm/s)=0.94

*In a run of six tests

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
The test substance is not to be considered as an oxidising substance
Executive summary:

In this guideline (EU A. 17) study, the test material (EC 404-363-3) was determined to not be an oxidising substance

Description of key information

Study conducted to recognised training guidelines

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:

Additional information

In the full test, the maximum burning rate of test substance mixture is lower than the maximum burning rate of the reference mixture and the ratio was calculated to be 0.94


Justification for classification or non-classification

As the experimental data shows, the substance is not considered to be classified as an oxidising material according to the CLP regulation (1272/2006).
