Any other information on results incl. tables

ignition temperature appears to strongly depend on the quantity and specification of the iron oxide yielding during the test. Finely divided iron oxide may even catalyse the combustion reaction, such that in a worst case scenario, self ignition of the substance can occur even below 55°C.
