Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test over 100 mm length
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period
Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
2-chlorbenzonitrile (solid) doesn't ignite, but melts.
The melt doesn't ignite.
Executive summary:

A continuous fill in triangular form with a height of 10 mm and a width of 20 mm is placed on a non-flammable surface.

The fill is ignited with a gas burner within 2 minutes.

It has to be determined weather the combustion propagates over a length of 200 mm within 4 minutes.

2-chlorbenzonitrile (solid) doesn't ignite, but melts.

The melt doesn't ignite.
