He said: "Preliminary tests show the insulation samples collected from Grenfell tower combusted soon after the test started".
The massive fire broke out early in the morning on June 14 and spread quickly through the 24-story apartment building.
Authorities are conducting similar safety tests on 600 buildings across the U.K.to determine if the same combustible cladding was used in their construction.
"It's obvious that the contractors took it upon themselves to use cheaper cladding and material, and I'm sure that's the case in hundreds of other towers", said Tony Glockner, a local activist and resident who lives in public housing owned by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
When speaking about the 79 people dead, presumed dead or missing, McCormack said: "I fear that there are more".

"The initial tests on the cladding tiles also failed the safety tests", she told reporters. Investigators have also found that materials used on Grenfell Tower's exterior also failed safety tests.
The Metropolitan Police said they are considering manslaughter charges among the criminal offenses that may have been committed in relation to the fire.
The cladding was installed on the council-owned building as part of a refurbishment completed past year. But, McCormack said, "Next week we will be installing a lift to the outside of the building to assist the recovery process".
Police said they are focused on how the blaze started, how it spread and whether any person or organizations should be held responsible.
