Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
read-across based on grouping of substances (category approach)
Adequacy of study:
weight of evidence
Study period:
From 26 April, 2010 to 09 June, 2010
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
read-across
Justification for type of information:
Refer to the section 13 for details on the read across justification. The flammability study with the read across substance is considered sufficient to fulfil the information requirements as further explained in the provided endpoint summary.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Not applicable

GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the study, the substance is not considered to be highly flammable.

Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flammability of the read-across substance 'glycerides, C16-18 and C18 unsatd., deodorizer distillates' in accordance with the EU Method A.10 in compliance with GLP. In a preliminary test, a pile of the test substance with a length of 250 mm, a width of 20 mm and a height of 10 mm was prepared in a aluminium mould. The pile was ignited at one end with a hot flame from a gas burner. The substance did not ignite in the preliminary test. Therefore, no further testing was required. Under the conditions of the study, the substance is not considered to be highly flammable (Fieseler, 2010q).

Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flammability of the read-across substance 'lauric fats deodorizer distillates' in accordance with the EU Method A.10 in compliance with GLP. In a preliminary test, the test substance was spread on a non-combustible surface in the form a rope ( 250 mm in length) was ignited with the flame of a gas burner. The flame was applied to the end of the rope for two minutes. The substance did not ignite. The substance did not ignite in the preliminary test. Therefore, no further testing was required. Under the test conditions, the substance is not considered to be highly flammable (Fieseler, 2010r).

Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flammability of the read-across substance 'soybean oil, deodorizer distillates' in accordance with the EU Method A.10 in compliance with GLP. In a preliminary test, the test substance spread on a non-combustible surface in the form a rope ( 250 mm in length) was ignited with the flame of a gas burner. The flame was applied to the end of the rope for two minutes. The substance did not ignite in the preliminary test. Therefore, no further testing was required. Hence, under the test conditions, the substance is not considered to be highly flammable (Fieseler, 2010p).

Description of key information

The chemical structure and physico-chemical properties of the test substance were examined and reviewed. Moreover, the variable, but overlapping composition of the category member distillates and the studies conducted with them were reviewed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Taking into account the variable composition and considering the studies conducted with similar distillates having overlapping composition, the substance is not expected to be highly flammable (Fieseler, 2010p, q, r).

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the studies conducted with different distillates having overlapping composition, 'oils, vegetable, deodorizer distillates'is not considered to be flammable and does not require classification according to CLP (EC/1272/2008) criteria.
