3 burst by burst pressure pressure, means the minimum pressure which causes the opening or breakage of the container of the aerosol generator.

4 total capacity of the container by total capacity of the container, is the volume, expressed in millilitres a container opened defined flush with its opening.

5 net capacity by net capacity, is the volume, expressed in millilitres, the container of the closed aerosol generator and ready to use.

6 volume of the liquid phase by volume of the liquid phase, we hear the volume that is occupied by non-gaseous phases in the container of the firm and ready to use aerosol generator.

7 test conditions by test conditions, means test and rupture pressures exerted hydraulically at 20 ° C (±5 ° C).

8 8.1 flammable components of an aerosol components are considered flammable as they contain a component any classified as flammable: a. flammable liquid: liquid having a flash point not more than 93 ° C;

b. flammable solids: solid mixtures or substances which are flammable or which can cause a fire or contribute by friction; flammable solids are substances or mixtures powdery, granular or Pasty, which are dangerous if they catch fire easily in brief contact with an ignition source, such as a match that burns, and if the flame spreads rapidly;

c. a flammable gas: gas or mixture of gases having an area of flammability in mixture with air at 20 ° C and a standard pressure of 1,013 bar.

8.2 this definition excludes substances and mixtures pyrophoriques, autoechauffants or hydroreactifs. They may in no circumstances be used as components of spray cans.

9 flammable aerosols (aerosols vaporized and foams of flammable aerosols) for the purposes of this order, an aerosol is regarded as "not flammable", "flammable" or "extremely flammable" according to its chemical heat of combustion and its mass content of flammable components: a. an aerosol is classified as "extremely flammable" if it contains at least 85% flammable components and the chemical heat of combustion is equal to or greater than 30 kJ/g.

b. an aerosol is classified as "flammable" if it contains more than 1% flammable components and the chemical heat of combustion is less than 20 kJ/g.

c. all other aerosols must be subject to the procedures set out in point 9.1 and 9.2 for the classification of their flammability or otherwise, are classified as "extremely flammable". The ignition distance test, flammability in a space closed and flammable foam must meet the requirements of section 6.3 of directive 75/324/EEC.

9.1 vaporized aerosols flammable in the case of vaporized aerosols, the classification shall be based on the heat of chemical combustion and on the results of the ignition distance test, as follows: a. If the heat of chemical combustion is less than 20 kJ/g - the aerosol is classified as "flammable" If ignition occurs at a distance of between 15 cm and 75 cm;

-the aerosol is classified as "extremely flammable" If ignition occurs at a distance equal or greater than 75 cm;

-If no ignition occurs in the ignition distance test, shall be of flammability in an enclosed space test and, in this case, the aerosol is classified as "flammable" If ignition equivalent time is less than or equal to 300 s/m or the deflagration density is less or equal to 300 g/m; the aerosol is classified as "flammable" in other cases.

(b) if the chemical heat of combustion is equal to or more than 20 kJ/g, the aerosol is classified as "extremely flammable" If ignition occurs at a distance equal or greater than 75 cm; the aerosol is classified as "flammable" in other cases.

9.2 foams of flammable aerosols in the case of foam aerosols, the classification of must be based on the results of the foam flammability test: a. the aerosol is classified as "extremely flammable":-If the flame height is equal to or greater than 20 cm and the flame duration is equal to or greater than 2 seconds; or-


If the flame height is equal to or greater than 4 cm and the flame duration is equal to or greater than 7 seconds.

(b) the aerosol that does not meet the criteria of the let. a is classified as "flammable" If the flame height is equal to or greater than 4 cm and the flame duration is equal to or greater than 2 seconds.

10 chemical heat of combustion 10.1 the value of the chemical heat of combustion (HAC) shall: a. in accordance with technical rules generally recognized, particularly in ASTM standards D 240, ISO 13943 86.1 to 86.3 and NFPA 30B or in the scientific literature attested. or b.

in accordance with the following methods of calculation: the chemical heat of combustion (Ahc), in kilojoules per gram (kJ/g), is the product of the theoretical heat of combustion (Ahcomb) and the coefficient of performance of combustion, which is usually less than 1.0 (it is most often of the order of 0.95 or 95%), for preparation of aerosol comprising several components , the chemical heat of combustion is the sum of the weighted values of the heat of combustion for the individual components, calculated as follows: ÄHc = S [wi % x Ahc (i)] i where: HAC = chemical heat of combustion (kJ/g) product, wi % = fraction of component i in the product, Ahc (i) = heat of specific combustion of component i in the product (kJ/g).

10.2 If the chemical heat of combustion is one of the parameters of the evaluation of the flammability of aerosols according to the provisions of this order, the person responsible for the placing on the market of the aerosol generator is required to describe the method used to calculate said in a document that is easy to obtain, in one of the official Swiss languages or in English at the address indicated on the label, in accordance with art. 14, al. 1, let. a. update by clause II al. 1 o of the DFI 3 nov. 2010, in effect since Dec. 1. 2010 (2010 5079 RO).
