Key result
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions
Remarks:
up to 400°C

5.29 g of the test item were filled into the stainless steel wire mesh cube and placed in the oven at 22 °C. The test item showed an endothermal effect in the temperature range of 135 - 185 °C. In a temperature range of 200 - 220 °C a weak exothermal effect was observed (peak temperature 217 °C). No further endothermal or exothermal effects were observed up to the final test temperature of 400 °C. 

Conclusions:
No self-ignition temperature was observed up to the maximum test temperature of 400 °C.
Executive summary:

No self-ignition temperature was observed up to the maximum test temperature of 400 °C, according to the testing guideline for auto-flammability (solids - determination of relative self-ignition temperature) in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No.440/2008, Method A.16.

Description of key information

The self-ignition temperature of the test item was determined to > 400 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information
