Key result
Test procedure:
other: substance tested for ignition and propagation of combustion by burning with flame along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period
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

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:
The test substance was considered as not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

The flammability of the test substance was evaluated in a study conducted according to EU Method A.10. The study comprised of a preliminary screening test, in which the test substance was tested for ignition and propagation of combustion by burning with flame along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes. Hence, the test substance was considered as not highly flammable.

Description of key information

The test substance was considered as not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

The flammability of the test substance was evaluated in a study conducted according to EU Method A.10. The study comprised of a preliminary screening test, in which the test substance was tested for ignition and propagation of combustion by burning with flame along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period. Glowing was observed during heating. No ignition occurred within two minutes. Hence, the test substance was considered as not highly flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the results of the flammability study, FAT 40147/G does not warrant classification according to CLP (Regulation 1272/2008) criteria.
