relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
07 Jul - 08 Jul 2015
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
GLP compliance:
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Storage conditions: ambient temperature (10 – 30 °C)
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions
No self-ignition temperature was seen up the maximum test temperature of 401 °C.

The test item showed an endothermal effect in the range of 200 – 220 °C. No further endothermal nor exothermal effects were seen up to the final test temperature of 401 °C. No self-ignition temperature was observed. After the measurement, the test item had melted and decomposed.

Conclusion: No self-ignition temperature was seen up the maximum test temperature of 401 °C.

Description of key information

No self-ignition (EU Method A.16.)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No self-ignition temperature was observed up to the maximum test temperature of 401°C, according to the testing guideline for auto-flammability (solids - determination of relative self-ignition temperature) in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, Method A.16.
