Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From August 25, 2017 to November 01, 2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Deviations:
not specified
GLP compliance:
yes
Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: During the study, the test substance melted and ignited with a small, localised, orange flame which extinguished on removal of the ignition source. No propagation or smouldering was observed.
Remarks:
In the preliminary screening test, the test substance was seen to briefly ignite and therefore the study author concluded that no further testing is required.

Result

During the study, the test substance melted and ignited with a small, localised, orange flame which extinguished on removal of the ignition source. No propagation or smouldering was observed. In the preliminary screening test, the test substance was seen to briefly ignite and therefore the study author concluded that no further testing is required.

Interpretation of results:
other: not classified based on EU CLP criteria
Conclusions:
Under study conditions, the test substance was classified as not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine tthe flammability of the test substance, 'iso and anteiso C10-40 AAP EDM-ES', according to EU Method A.10, in compliance with GLP. During the study, the test substance melted and ignited with a small, localised, orange flame which extinguished on removal of the ignition source. No propagation or smouldering was observed. In the preliminary screening test, the test substance was seen to briefly ignite and therefore the study author concluded that no further testing is required. Under the study conditions, the test substance was classified as not highly flammable (Chilworth, 2017).

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:
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

Description of key information

The flammability of the test substance was determined according to the EU Method A10 (Chilworth, 2017).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

In the preliminary test, the test substance melted and ignited with a small, localised, orange flame which extinguished on removal of the ignition source. There was no propagation along the powder train. As a negative result was obtained in the preliminary test, a definitive burning rate test was not required. Under study conditions, the test substance was considered to be not highly flammable and not classified based on EU CLP criteria (Regulation 1272/2008/EC).​
