Auto-ignition temperature:
340 °C
Atm. press.:
1 010.5 - 1 022.9 hPa
Remarks on result:
other:

Any other information on results incl. tables

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 < 20°C. According to the guidelines, no further testing was required.

 

The lowest temperature at which ignition of the test substance occurred was 340°C.

 

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Commercially available auto-ignition temperatures apparatus was used for the determination of the degree of auto-ignitability of Aquapel® 203. The test substance is auto-ignitable with an auto-ignition temperature at 1010.5 – 1022.9 hPa of 340°C.
