Key result
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point

Using a linear increase in temperature of about 0.5 deg C/min, T002615 showed no relevant exothermic reaction. At the end of the measurement T002615 was run out of the sample cube due to melting.

In conclusion, T002615 is not auto-flammable, according to the criteria as described in the guideline.

Description of key information

The EU A.16 test demonstrated that T002615 is “not a self-heating substance” (Klimisch 1, Tognucci, 2003).

Key value for chemical safety assessment
