relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From November 29th to December 01st, 2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Reference:
Composition 0
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Test material information:
Composition 1
Specific details on test material used for the study:
The test item was used in its initial form.
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point

In the course of the study, the test item did not self-ignite up to the melting point (melting range was determined to be 280 to 284 °C). Thus, no self-ignition temperature could be stated.

Conclusions:
No self-ignition up to melting point (280 - 284 °C).
Executive summary:

A certain volume of the test item under the assay was placed into an oven at ambient temperature; the temperature/time curve was recorded while the temperature of the oven was increased up to the melting point, at a rate of approximately 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. Three replicate tests were performed.

In the course of the study, the test item did not self-ignite up to the melting point. Thus, no self-ignition temperature could be stated.

Conclusion

No self-ignition up to melting point (280 - 284 °C).

Description of key information

No self-ignition up to melting point (280 - 284 °C).
