Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

The test substance was filled into a non-combustible mould of 250 mm length and triangular cross section with an inner height of 10 mm and an inner width of 20 mm. A non-combustible and non-porous plate was placed on top of the mould. This was inverted and the mould removed.

In a preliminary test, the pile of test substance was ignited with a flame (minimum diameter 5 mm) of a gas burner. The flame was applied to the end of the pile for 2 minutes and the test substance did not ignite. Therefore, it is not considered as highly flammable and no further testing was required.
