Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1988
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Version / remarks:
- EEC Directive 84/449 Part. A.16
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
- A defined air stream of approx. 2 L/min is circulated through the oven instead of natural air circulation. Cube: Wire mesh with 0.210 mm openings instead of 0.045 mm.
GLP compliance:
no
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point

- No self-ignition.

- No significant observation on the temperature/time curve between room temperature and the melting point of the substance. (approx. 114 °C).

Conclusions:
No self-ignition between room temperature and the melting point of the substance
Executive summary:

In this study conducted to generally accepted scientific standards (EU A. 16) the test material (EC 404-360-3) was determined to not have self-ignition between room temperature and the melting point

Description of key information

Study conducted to generally accepted scientific standards
