Results and discussion

Flammable solids
Key result
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
Burning time:
ca. 20 s
Remarks on result:
other: combustion did not propagate

Any other information on results incl. tables

Remarks on Results: 3 -CLPA was formed into a powder train (row). One end of the train was contacted with a blue propane flame. The 3CPA under the flame melted and ignited but only burned for ~ 20 sec. Combustion did not propagate along the train during this test.  Therefore, it was concluded that 3 -CLPA was not flammable and no further testing was required.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
The test material is not flammable.
Executive summary:

The flammability of the test substance was determined in a GLP-compliant study performed according to EU method A. 10. The test material was formed into a powder train and one end was contacted with a blue propane flame. The test substance melted and ignited and burned for ~ 20 seconds. No combustion propagated along the train and it was concluded that the test material is not flammable.
