Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test material has been determined to have an auto-ignition temperature of 236 ± 5°C.
Executive summary:

The auto-ignition temperature was determined by heating aliquots of the test material in a flask and observing for any ignition.  Testing was conducted using Method A15 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

The test material has been determined to have an auto-ignition temperature of 236 ± 5°C.
