burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Burning time:
0 s

Any other information on results incl. tables

In contact with the flame of the gas burner the test item melted and turned into a dark red residue. Grey smoke was observed. After removal of the ignition source, no propagation of combustion of the test item was observed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The preliminary screening test was performed for the determination of the flammability of V134434.
No propagation of combustion of the test item along 200 mm length of the pile within
4 minutes was observed. According to the guidelines, performance of the burning rate test is not required. Based on the results obtained, the test item is considered ‘not highly flammable’.
