Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
16/03/16, 05/05/2016 and 24/05/2016
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
according to guideline
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
GLP compliance:
Other quality assurance:
other: ISO 9001-2008
TECNIO network
Key result
Relative self-ignition temperature:
600 °C
The relative self-ignition of the substance occurs at 600ºC
Executive summary:

A first DSC has been done and the sample has shown an endothermic phenomenon starting at 187ºC with an associated heat of 330.6 J/g

In view of these results, the same sample has been analysed by DSC-HP (in inert atmosphere, nitrogen) showing an exothermic phenomenon from 197°C with a peak at 208°C and an associated heat of 362.9 J/g which could be attributed to the thermal decomposition of the sample.

The sample sample has been by TGA showing a first weight loss of 7.9% from 30°C to 224°C, a second weight loss of 8.9% from 224°C to 278°C and a third weight loss of 32.5% from 280°C to 598°C.
