Results and discussion

Flammable solids
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: substance does not ignite within the 2 minutes test period

Any other information on results incl. tables

In contact with the flame, the substance became more fluid. There was no smouldering observed within the 4 minutes test period after the withdrawal of the flame.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
study cannot be used for classification
Conclusions:
The substance did not ignite in contact with a flame.
Executive summary:

In an experiment based on EC A.10, the substance was kept in the mould when applying the flame.

The substance did not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering.
