Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
26 February 2018 - TBC
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
Study was conducted in accordance with international guidelines and in accordance with GLP. All guideline validity criteria were met.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Version / remarks:
Regulation (EC) 440/2008 of 30 May 2008
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Key result
Relative self-ignition temperature:
210 °C

Results:

During the investigation of the self-ignition temperature of the test item an exothermic effect was detected.  The temperature at which the oven at which the sample temperature reaches 400 °C by self-heating is 210 °C.

In accordance with Method A.16 of Regulation EC No. 440/2008 (as amended) the self-ignition temperature of the test item is determined to be 210 °C.

Conclusions:
The relative self-ignition temperature of the test item was determined to be 210 °C under prescribed test conditions.
Executive summary:

EU Method A.16. – The relative self-ignition temperature of the test item was determined using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.16., Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids, of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

An aliquot of test item (8 cm3) was packed into a suitable vessel and placed in an oven as prescribed by the guideline.  The temperature of the oven was increased from ambient to 400 ℃ at a constant heating rate of 0.5 K/min.  The temperature and behaviour of the test item monitored throughout this thermal programme.

During the test an exothermic effect was detected, the relative self-ignition temperature of the test item was determined to be 210 °C under prescribed test conditions.
