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
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Since the test item could not be ignited with a flame in the preliminary test, the test item is not considered to be a highly flammable solid.
Executive summary:

The purpose of this study was the determination of the flammability (solids) of the test item according to the EU method A.10. The test item melted and could not be ignited with a flame in the preliminary test. Therefore, the performance of the main test was not necessary. Thus, the test item is not considered to be a highly flammable solid.

Description of key information

Since the test item could not be ignited with a flame in the preliminary test, the test item is not considered to be a highly flammable solid.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
