The result of the first determination was discarded; therefore the lowest value of the auto ignition temperature is 520 °C. This value was determined using 2 drops test item. The test item showed auto ignition after 22 seconds. The three lowest values of the main test lay within a range of 20 K (as required for auto ignition temperatures above 300 °C). The largest difference between measured ignition temperatures was 5 K.

Conclusions:
Auto-ignition temperature of the test item was determined to be 520°C at 1013.25 hPa.
Executive summary:

Auto-ignition temperature of the test item was determined in four test series according to EU method A.15 and DIN 51794. The result of the first determination was discarded. Therefore, the auto ignition temperature is the lowest value from the lowest values of the three experiments, rounded down to a whole multiple of 5°C. The three lowest values of the main study lay within a range of 20 K as required for auto ignition temperatures above 300 °C. Thus, the validity criterion which is demanded in the DIN standard was fulfilled. Auto-ignition temperature of the test item was determined to be 520°C at 1013.25 hPa.
