Description of key information

The test material has been determined not to have a self-ignition temperature below 400 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The key study was conducted in line with GLP and the standardised guideline EU Method A.16. It was assigned a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria detailed by Klimisch (1997).

A wire mesh cube was completely filled with the test material and placed in the centre of an oven at room temperature. A thermocouple was placed in the centre of the sample and another in the oven. The oven temperature was increased from ambient to 400 °C at a rate of 0.5 °C/min.

Whilst heating, the test material showed no significant temperature rise above the oven temperature.

The test material has been determined not to have a self-ignition temperature below 400 °C.
