Description of key information

In tests conducted according to UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Test N.1 (Test method for readily combustible solids), Petrolatum samples were found to be not flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

not classified

Additional information

The samples melted, but no ignition or propagation was observed in any sample.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The Petrolatum samples did not propagate burning over 200mm.

Based on the combustion propagation of less than 200 mm in 4 minutes, classification of Petrolatums as flammable is not warranted in accordance with the EU CLP Regulation (EC No. 1272/2008).
