Executive summary:

The purpose of this test was to investigate the flash point of the test substance according to the guideline EEC A.9.

It was considered more appropriate to determine the flash point of the test substance than to conduct the flammability (solids) test due to its low melting point (approximately 40°C).

At 230°C the test substance began to evolve black smoke indicating decomposition. No flash however was observed at any temperature up to the maximum limit for the test (360°C).
