or specified in description of method (migrated information)
Burning time:
ca. 50 s

Any other information on results incl. tables

A10: Preliminary test showed no ignition. However, when exposed to an ignition source when contained in a crucible the test material ignited after circa 50 seconds. A12: No gases were produced during any of the four tests as a result of the addition of water to the test item. SHOP C20-22 alpha olefin does not evolve flammable gases according to the EC test method. A13: No ignition was observed during the performance sof any of the two types of tests at 20°C. SHOP C20-22 alpha olefin is not pyrophoric according to the EC test method

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
SHOP C20-22 alpha olefin is not considered to be a flammable solid on the basis of the three studies conducted
Executive summary:

This has been chosen as the key study as it is GLP compliant and follows standard guidelines.
