Description of key information

In a determination of physico-chemical properties study the test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm in the preliminary screening test. The rope ignited and burned with an orange flame for 1 minute and 24 seconds before self-extinguishing. The combustion failed to propagate over 200 mm.
The result of the preliminary screening test obviated the need to perform the main test.
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 Flammability (Solids) of Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008, Part A: Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

A reliability rating of 1 was assigned to the key study, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997 as the study was conducted in accordance with recognised guidelines and GLP.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In a determination of physico-chemical properties study the test material has been determined to be not highly flammable as it did not propagate combustion over the 200 mm in the preliminary screening test.
