relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
21 May - 26 May 2015
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Version / remarks:
adopted in 2008
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Ministerium für Arbeit, Integration und Soziales des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, Germany
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Storage conditions: at room temperature, tightly closed, dry
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions

The course of the sample temperature shows no exothermic reaction up to the ambient temperature of 400 °C. Afterwards the test was stopped and the sample container was weighed. A sample mass loss of 2.7 g could be ascertained.

The sample is not able for self-ignition according to the assessment criterion and definition in the Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, test method A.16.


Description of key information

Not self-heating.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The test item does not self-ignite when heated up to 400 °C (EU method A.16.)
