Key result
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
substance does not ignite and propagate combustion either by burning with flame or smouldering along 200 mm of the powder train within the 2 minutes test period

In the preliminary test the test substance melted and could not be ignited. Based on the results of the preliminary test, no main test was performed.

The test substance could not be ignited. Therefore, the substance is considered not to be highly flammable.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, the test substance could not be ignited, therefore, the substance is considered not to be highly flammable.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the flammability potential of the test substance according to EU Method A.10 and (EC) No 440/2008, in compliance with GLP. The test substance was formed into a powder train and it was ignited by a gas flame. Under the study conditions, the test substance could not be ignited, therefore, the substance is considered not to be highly flammable (Kovács, 2018).

Description of key information

The flammability was determined according to EU Method A.10 (Kovács, 2018).
