Results

Preliminary screening test

The ‘rope’ 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.

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:

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 67/54 8/EEC).

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