Any other information on results incl. tables

Preliminary Test:

In the preliminary test the test item did not ignite at room temperature using a flame as ignition source being applied for at least 2 minutes. The test item liquefied.

Main Test:

In the preliminary test the test item could not be ignited by a flame. Thus, the performance of the main test was not necessary.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test item is non flammable. The product neither has to be classified as highly flammable solid according to EC 440/2008, A.10., nor as readily combustible solid in UN class 4.1 nor as flammable solid according to GHS.
Executive summary:

The flammability of the test item was tested in a preliminary test according to EU A.10, UN N.1 and VDI 2263.

The test item could not be ignited applying a flame as ignition source for at least 2 minutes. The test item liquefied.
