Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: Test item could not be ignited with a flame. Performance of the main test was not necessary.

Results
Preliminary Test
The test item could not be ignited with a flame, it carbonized at the surface upon contact with the flame. The performance of the main test was not necessary.

Conclusion: The test item is not a highly flammable solid.

Endpoint:
pyrophoric solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:

Description of key information

Substance is not a highly flammable solid (EU Method A.10., Burning rate preliminary test)

No pyrophoricity.
No flammabiltiy on contact with water.

Not self-heating.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

The flammability of the substance was determined according to EU Method A.10. Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected.

The substance is not self-heating, the substance is a solid with a melting point < 160 °C.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on flammability of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification: No propagation of burning in a test according to EU Method A.10. Based on the chemical structure and experience in handling and use, pyrophoricity and flammability on contact with water are not expected.

The substance is a solid with a melting point < 160 °C.
