Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
April 2015
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Test N.1 (Test method for readily combustible solids)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
A Mould 250mm long with a triangular cross section of inner height 10mm and width 20mm is used to form the train for the burning rate test. On both sides of the mould, in the longitudinal direction, two metal sheets are mounted as lateral limitations which extend 2mm beyond the upper edge of the triangular cross section. An impervious, non combustible, low heat conducting plate is used to support the sample train.
GLP compliance:
no

no reaction with water observed and no ignition on contact with air (not pyrophoric)

Interpretation of results:
not classified based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The substance is not considered a flammable solid

Description of key information

The substance is not considered a flammable solid.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with BMS Hazard assessment for Classification, the substance is not a desensitised explosive, It is not self-reactive and does not contain chemical groups associated with explosive or self-reactive properties. The Decomposition energy is less that 300J/g in the Differential Scanning Calorimetry test. The substance is not readily combustible by UN N.1 screening test.
