guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))

Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

Amides, C8-18 and C18 unsat., N-(hydroxyethyl) did not ignite from the flame of the burner in three preliminary tests, instead it was found to be melting in the formed path. Therefore, amides, C8-18 and C18 unsat., N-(hydroxyethyl was considered not to be highly flammable and no further tests were performed.

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Conclusions:
Amides, C8-18 and C18 unsatd., N-(hydroxyethyl) is not highly flammable in accordance with EU Method A.10. criteria.

Executive summary:

A study in accordance with EU method A.10 was conducted to determine the flammability of amides, C8-18 and C18 unsatd., N-(hydroxyethyl).

In the preliminary test, the test substance was formed into an unbroken strip or powder train about 250 mm long by 20 mm wide by 10 mm high on a non-combustible, non-porous and low heat-conducting base plate. A hot flame from a gas burner (minimum diameter 5 mm) was applied to one end of the powder train until the powder ignited or for a maximum of 2 minutes.

Amides, C8-18 and C18 unsatd., N-(hydroxyethyl) did not ignite from the flame of the burner instead it was found to be melting in the formed path and

therefore is not highly flammable in accordance with EU Method A.10. criteria.

Description of key information

The flammability was determined according to EU Method A.10 (Frączak, 2010).
