Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Moisture (wt %):
2.02
Remarks on result:
other: In a preliminary test, the test substance melted, but no propagation or smouldering was observed. In the preliminary screening test, the test substance was seen not to ignite and therefore the study author concluded that no further testing was required.

Result

In a preliminary test, the test substance melted, but no propagation or smouldering was observed. In the preliminary screening test, the test substance was seen not to ignite and therefore the study author concluded that no further testing was required.

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

A study was conducted to determine the flammability of the test substance, according to EU Method A.10, in compliance with GLP. In a preliminary test, the test substance melted, but no propagation or smouldering was observed. In the preliminary screening test, the test substance was seen not to ignite and therefore the study author concluded that no further testing was required. Under study conditions, the test substance was considered to be not highly flammable (Chilworth, 2017).

Description of key information

The flammability of the test substance was determined according to EU Method A.10 (Chilworth, 2017).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

In a preliminary test, the test substance melted, but no propagation or smouldering was observed. In the preliminary screening test, the test substance was seen not to ignite and therefore the study author concluded that no further testing was required. Based on the study result, the test substance considered as not classified based on EU CLP criteria.
