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:

In a physico-chemical properties study (0656/0410), the substance has been determined to not be flammable based on Method A10 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008.
