flammable solids
Type of information:
other: read across
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to
EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids))
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The test was performed according to the Dir. 92/69/EEC (OJ L383A) protocol.
GLP compliance:
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

The test resulted to be negative, thus the substance can be considered as non flammable.

Interpretation of results:
other: Non flammable
Non flammable.
Executive summary:

The test was performed according to internationally accepted testing method A.10.

The test resulted to be negative, thus the substance can be considered as non flammable.


Non flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), 2.7 section, flammable solids, powdered, granular or pasty substances or mixtures shall be classified as readily combustible solids when the time of burning of one or more of the test runs, performed in accordance with the test method described in Part III, sub-section 33.2.1, of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, is less than 45 seconds or the rate of burning is more than 2.2 mm/s.

The substance did not propagate burning of a 200 mm length of the strip in less than four minutes, therefore it is expected to be non flammable.

In conclusion, according to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008) Direct Black 062 does not meet the criteria to be classified as flammable.
