Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
17 August 2001 to 25 August 2001
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Key result
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point

The cube was empty. A pool of melted material was observed on the floor of the oven.

Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the test, the test material was determined not to have a relative self-ignition temperature below its melting temperature.
Executive summary:

In a GLP compliant relative self-ignition temperature study conducted in accordance with standardised guideline EU Method A.16, the relative self-ignition temperature of the test material was determined. Under the conditions of the study, the test material was determined not to have a relative self-ignition temperature below its melting temperature.

Description of key information

The test material was determined not to have a relative self-ignition temperature below its melting temperature according to a study performed in line with  EU Method A.16.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The key study (Tremain, 2001) was performed in line with GLP and a standardised guideline with a sufficient level of detail to assess the quality of the study. The study was performed to a good standard and was assigned a reliability score of 1 using the principle for assessing data quality as set out in Klimisch (1997).
