Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The results of the main study on the determination of the auto-ignition temperature of the test substance are given in Table 13.

Ignition of the test substance within 5 minutes after introduction was observed with each sample volume and with each test a minimum auto-ignition temperature was obtained. The maximum deviation between the three values was <10oC. According to the guidelines, no further testing was required. The lowest temperature at which ignition of the test substance occurred was 263°C. This temperature was rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5°C giving an auto-ignition temperature of the test substance of 260°C.
