Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

In the key study (Sárvári, 2012g) the flammability of the test material was determined in a study performed under GLP conditions and in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.10.

The test material was formed into a powder train. It was ignited by a gas flame and the burning rate was determined. Two parallel flammability tests were performed. In these preliminary tests the test material propagated burning over a length of 200 mm in more than 4 minutes (507 and 563 sec).

The tests were negative. The test material is not flammable in the conditions of this test.

In accordance with Section 2 of Annex XI of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH), it is considered justified to omit the Flammability (Contact with Water) and the Flammability (Pyrophoric Properties) studies (both further required in Section 7.10), as there is no evidence based upon chemical structure nor experience in handling, that the substance will either spontaneously ignite in air at room temperature or exhibit flammable properties in contact with water.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the criteria outlined in Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, the substance does not meet the criteria for classification for flammability.
