Preliminary test

The estimated auto-ignition temperature was 320°C.

 

Main study

Ignition of the test substance within 5 minutes after introduction was observed with each sample volume and with each test a minimum auto-ignition temperature was obtained. The maximum deviation between the three values was < 10°C. According to the guidelines, no further testing was required. The lowest temperature at which ignition of the test substance occurred was 217°C. This temperature was rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5°C giving an auto-ignition temperature of the test substance of 215°C.

Conclusions:
The auto-ignition temperature was determined to be 295 °C at 1015.1 hPa
Executive summary:

The auto-ignition temperature was determined using EU Method A.15 under GLP. The auto-ignition temperature is the lowest temperature at which the test item will ignite when mixed with air under the conditions defined in the test method. Ignition of the test substance within 5 minutes after introduction was observed with each sample volume and with each test a minimum auto-ignition temperature was obtained.

Additional information

Key study: EU Method A.15, 2014 : The auto-ignition temperature was determined using EU Method A.15 under GLP. The auto-ignition temperature is the lowest temperature at which the test item will ignite when mixed with air under the conditions defined in the test method. The lowest temperature at which ignition of the test substance occurred was 217 °C. This temperature was rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5°C. The auto-ignition temperature was determined to be 215 °C at 1015.1 hPa.
