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

Study results

The test item was formed into a particle train. A hot flame from a gas burner with a diameter of about 6 mm is used to ignite the pile at one end. In the preliminary screening test the substance does not ignite by a hot flame from a gas burner. Instead of that, the test item melts. According to the definition of Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 the test item is not considered as flammable.

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
According to the definition of Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 the test item is not considered as flammable.
Executive summary:

In the preliminary screening test the substance does not ignite by a hot flame from a gas burner. Instead of that, the test item melts. According to the definition of Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 the test item is not considered as flammable.
