Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: GLP compliant guideline study, available as unpublished report. No restrictions, fully adequate for assessment
Justification for type of information:
A discussion and report on the read across strategy is given as an attachment in IUCLID Section 13.
Reason / purpose:
read-across: supporting information
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Key result
Test procedure:
burning time (test type not further specified)
Remarks:
or specified in description of method (migrated information)
Remarks on result:
other: Failed to ignite

The test item failed to ignite during the two minutes that the Bunsen flame was applied during the preliminary test, obviating the need to perform the main test.

Conclusions:
The test item is not highly flammable.
Executive summary:

Harlan (2012) carried out a preliminary screening test in which a pile of test material of set dimensions failed to ignite. The main test was therefore not performed and the test item was determined to be not highly flammable.

Description of key information

There is no data available for Resin acids and rosin acids, reaction products with formaldehyde, sodium salts. However, data available from a structural analogue Resin acids and rosin acids, reaction products with formaldehyde, potassium salts is used as read across.

None of the substances in the category Rosin, hydrogenated rosin and their salts are considered to be flammable, flammable on contact

with water or pyrophoric.


Resin acids and rosin acids, reaction products with formaldehyde, potassium salts is not highly flammable. Flammability on contact with water and pyrophoricity are waived on the basis of handling and use.


Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There is no data available for Resin acids and rosin acids, reaction products with formaldehyde, sodium salts. However, data available from a structural analogue Resin acids and rosin acids, reaction products with formaldehyde, potassium salts is used as read across.

A GLP-compliant study, conducted according to EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids)), was provided for Resin acids and Rosin acids, reaction products with formaldehyde, potassium salt (Harlan Laboratories Ltd., 2012c)

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data indicates that Resin acids and Rosin acids, reaction products with formaldehyde, potassium salt is not classified as flammable.
