Any other information on results incl. tables

In the screening test according to Grewer with the pure product an exothermal effect was detected starting at 220 °C. A multistage reaction was observed which led to a maximum product temperature of more than 500 °C.

In the screening test with the kieselgur mixture (1:1) an exothermal effect was detected starting at 230 °C. A multistage reaction was observed which led to a maximum product temperature of more than 450 °C

Between 60 and 160 °C an endothermal effect was observed. After the test the mesh wire basket of the pure product was black and swollen.
