The word non-combustible can be used for a kind of substance that can not be burnt easily. You will find that the word is not a part of any English dictionary and is formed by combining the word combustible with the prefix 'non'.

We all know that the prefix 'non' conveys the idea of absence of something and combustible is a word that is used for a substance that can be burnt very easily. So if something is non-combustible it is obvious that the substance will not burn easily.

There are several words that are formed by using the prefix 'non' and all of them are conveying the same idea of absence of something. You can find the word non-committal, non-compliance and several others that are based on the same root
