1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Version / remarks:
2008

no
GLP compliance:
no
Key result
Relative self-ignition temperature:
397 °C

In the test, an endothermal effect occurred at 260 -280 °C. From a temperature of approximately 280 °C the temperature of the test item remained permanently above the oven temperature and led to a maximum temperature of 403 °C. No sharp temperature increase was observed. The temperature of the test item exceeded 400 °C at a corresponding oven temperature of 397 °C.

Conclusions:
The auto-ignition temperature of the test item was determined to be 397 °C.
Executive summary:

A study according to Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008 Method A.16 was conducted to determine the relative auto-ignition temperature of the test item.The relative self-ignition temperature was 397 °C, according to the testing guideline for auto-flammability.

Description of key information

The auto-ignition temperature of the test item was determined to be 397 °C (reference 4.12-1).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
397 °C
