Results (see table):

First trial: The preselected auto-ignition temperature was set to 150 °C but no ignition occured during this trial.

Second trial: The preselected auto-ignition temperature was set to 350°C.

Firstly, VORB program was used with an amount of 5 droplets for each test.

Ignition occured for a sample temperature of 271.4°C.

Then H-A1 program and H-A2 program were conducted.

For the first determination, H-A1 program was performed from 266 °C using 5 droplets by decreasing temperature in 5 °C steps as ignition occurred.

At 266 °C, ignition did not occur so the amount of test item that is injected was modified. Tests were performed with 2 and 8 droplets.

Ignition occurred using 8 droplets and so the temperature was decreased again in 5 °C steps till 256 °C. Tests were then performed continuing to vary the amount of droplets till no ignition occurs whatever the amount of droplets. The last ignition occurred at 256 °C using 11 droplets.

H-A2 program was then used from 254 °C using consecutively 5, 2, 8 and 11 droplets but no ignition occured. The last ignition occured at 256°C using 11 droplets during H-A1 program and correspond to the first auto-ignition temperature (LASTIP on raw data).

For the second determination, temperature was then increased to the value obtained with VORB program (271 °C) and H-A1 program was performed using 11 droplets. The same operatory mode as for the first determination was performed and the lowest auto-ignition was found at 257 °C using 8 droplets.

A third determination was performed as for the second one and a lowest auto-ignition temperature of 259 °C with 8 droplets was found.

The lowest value (256 °C) was reduced by the absolute deviation calculated using the reproducibility value (1.5 % relative) and rounded up to the next 1 °C.

A final auto-ignition temperature (END IP VALUE in raw data) of 252 °C was obtained.

The atmospheric pressure was 975.0 hPa at the beginning of the test and 984.0 hPa at the end of the test.      

Conclusions:
According to EU method A.15, auto-ignition temperature of 252°C was estimated for the test item.
Executive summary:

A study was performed to determine the auto-ignition Temperature of the test item NERYL ACETATE. The method followed was designed to be compliant with the Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, Method A.15: ''Auto-ignition Temperature (Liquids and gases)''.

In this method, the auto-ignition temperature of the test item was determined by varying the temperature of the test vessel and the amount of the test substance.

The lowest temperature where ignition occurs was retained and, in order to take into account all uncertainties (calibration, temperature measuring system, amount of substance etc.), this lowest value was reduced by the absolute deviation calculated using the reproducibility value (1.5% relative) as described in DIN EN 14522:2005.

Two trials were conducted. In the first one, the preselected auto-ignition temperature was set to 150°C but no ignition occured and the test stopped automatically. In the second one, the preselected auto-ignition temperature was set to 350°C and three auto-ignition temperature were recorded (recorded as LASTIP on raw data): 256°C, 257°C and 259°C.

As these three auto-ignition temperature obtained with the determination program did not differ by more than 2%, the results were validated and the lowest value (256°C) was reduced by the absolute deviation calculated using the reproducibility value (1.5% relative) as described in DIN EN 14522:2005.

This value was rounded up to the next 1°C and a final auto-ignition temperature (END IP VALUE in raw data) of 252°C was obtained.

The atmospheric pressure was 975.0 hPa at the begining of the test and 984.0 hPa at the end of the test.
