Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
05 May 2017 - 11 May 2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
Test method according to EEC method A.16. GLP study.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Key result
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions

No changes of the sample were observed on the temperature vs. time curve in the range of 0 -400ºC. See image attached.

Conclusions:
The test item does not have a relative self-ignition temperature according to EU method A.16 criteria.
Executive summary:

The determination of the self-ignition temperature of the test item was performed according to EU Method A.16 (GLP study). A cube of stainless steel wire mesh was filled with the test item, suspended in the centre of the laboratory oven and heated at a constant rate of 0.5ºC/min until reaching 400ºC. One thermocouple was placed at the centre of the cube and the other between the cube and the oven wall to record the oven temperature. Based on the test results, the test item does not have a relative self-ignition temperature according to EU method A.16 criteria.

Description of key information

Key study. Test method according to EU Method A.16, GLP study. The test item does not have a relative self-ignition temperature.
