Key result
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions

The auto-flammability behaviour was determined by placing the test item into a stainless steel cube and heating the environment (laboratory oven with automatic temperature re-cording) from room temperature to 400 °C. No increase in the temperature of the sample in comparison to that of the oven could be detected, also no signs of ignition could be observed. Therefore, the test item sodium cyanate is considered as not auto-flammable.

Conclusions:
Sodium cyanate is not autoflammable.
Executive summary:

The auto-flammability behaviour was determined by placing the test item into a stainless steel cube and heating the environment (laboratory oven with automatic temperature recording) from room temperature to 400 °C. No increase in the temperature of the sample in comparison to that of the oven could be detected, also no signs of ignition could be observed. Therefore, the test item sodium cyanate is considered as not auto-flammable.
