Materials and methods

Test guideline
according to guideline
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The test substance was loosely filled into the mould which was then dropped three times from a height of 2 cm onto a fume cupboard floor. The mould was removed from its holder and excess substance scraped off with a straight edge. An asbestos substitute board was placed on the mould, the apparatus inverted, and the mould removed. The asbestos substitute board was placed in the draught box in a fume cupboard with the extractor switched on. A attempt to ignite the pile was made using a hot flame (minimum diameter 5 mm) from a gas burner. The test flame was extinguished after 2 minutes. Only one pile was tested
