Executive summary:

The relative self-ignition temperature was determined according to EU Method A.16.

A certain volume of the substance under test is placed in an oven at room temperature; the temperature/time curve relating to conditions in the centre of the sample is recorded while the temperature of the oven is increased to 400 °C, or to the melting point if lower, at a rate of 0.5 °C/min. For the purpose of this test, the temperature of the oven at which the sample temperature reaches 400 °C by self-heating is called the self-ignition temperature.

No self ignition was observed up to the stop temperature of 400 °C.

Description of key information

The relative self-ignition temperature was determined according to EU Method A.16 (Roos, 2007).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information
