Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
08 September 2016 to 08 September 2016
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Key result
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
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

In the preliminary test the test item could not ignited. Based on the results of the preliminary test, no main test was performed.

The test item is considered flammable if in a main test the duration of ignition of the length takes less than 45 seconds. In all other cases the test item is not considered flammable.

The test item could not ignited. Therefore, the substance is considered not to be highly flammable.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the test, the test item could not be ignited and therefore it was considered not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

The flammability of the test material was investigated in a GLP study conducted in accordance to the standardised guideline EU Method A.10.

Two parallel flammability tests were performed. The test item was formed into a powder train. The flame from a gas burner was applied to one end of the powder train for a minimum of 2 minutes and the burning rate was then determined. Both tests conducted were negative.

The test item could not be ignited and therefore it was not highly flammable under the conditions of the test.

Description of key information

Under the conditions of the test, the test item could not be ignited and therefore it was not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

The flammability of the test material was investigated in a GLP study conducted in accordance to the standardised guideline EU Method A.10. The study was assigned a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria for assessing data quality set forth by Klimisch et al. (1997).

Two parallel flammability tests were performed. The test item was formed into a powder train. The flame from a gas burner was applied to one end of the powder train for a minimum of 2 minutes and the burning rate was then determined. Both tests conducted were negative.

The test item could not be ignited and therefore it was not highly flammable under the conditions of the test.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex I, Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, the substance does not require classification with respect to flammability.
