Results and discussion

Auto-ignition temperature (liquids / gases)
Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
375 °C
Atm. press.:
> 1 019.7 - < 1 020.2 hPa

Any other information on results incl. tables

The lowest temperature at which ignition of the test item occurred was 377 °C. This temperature was rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5 °C giving an auto-ignition temperature of the test item of 375 °C.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The auto-flammability temperature of Novec 7700 is 375 °C at 1019.7 - 1020.2 hPa as determined by EU Method A.15.
Executive summary:

The auto-flammability temperature of Novec 7700 is 375 °C at 1019.7 - 1020.2 hPa and was tested using an auto-ignition temperature apparatus. The study was conducted in accordance with EU Method A.15 and was GLP compliant; therefore the study is considered reliable without restrictions.
