Findings

Safety Pre-Test

A small amount of the test item was heated on a magnesia groove with a gas burner. Glowing was observed. The test item showed no signs of ignition.

Preliminary screening test

The test item was heated with the flame of a teclu burner. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
FAT 20036/G TE should be considered as not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

The investigations into the flammability of FAT 20036/G TE was performed according to the EU method A.10. The test item was formed into an unbroken strip or powder train about 250 mm long and heated with the flame of a teclu burner. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes. Hence, the test item FAT 20036/G TE should be considered as not highly flammable.
