Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test material has been determined not to have an auto-ignition temperature below 400 °C.
Executive summary:

The tendency for the test material to undergo auto-ignition was investigated in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.15.

The study was carried out by heating aliquots of the test material in a flask and observing for any ignition.

The test material has been determined not to have an auto-ignition temperature below 400 °C.
