Materials and methods

Test guideline
according to guideline
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The relative self-ignition temperature was determined at elevated temperatures.
Two wire mesh cubes were suspended from the sampler holder and a thermocouple centrally placed in each. One cube was filled with test substance and the other with sand (as a reference). The lid was replaced on the oven and the test commenced, with a heating rate of 0.5°C/min from ambient to 450°C
