key study
Study period:
28 November 2011- 03 February 2012
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: The study has been performed according to the appropriate guidelines and according to the principles of GLP.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases))
Version / remarks:
(2008)
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: DIN Guide 51794: "Determining the Ignition Temperature of Petroleum Products" (2003)
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: IEC standard 79-4: "Electrical Apparatus for Explosive Gas Atmospheres, Part 4, Method of Test for Ignition Temperature" ( 1975)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Auto-ignition temperature:
360 °C
Atm. press.:
990.6 - 1 008.6 hPa
Remarks on result:
other:

Ignition of the test substance within 5 minutes after introduction was observed with each sample volume and with each test a minimum auto-ignition temperature was obtained. The maximum deviation between the three values was < 20°C. The lowest temperature at which ignition of the test substance occurred was 363°C. This temperature was rounded off to the nearest multiple of 5°C giving the auto-ignition temperature of the test substance.
