Key result
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point

The substance showed two exothermic reactions:

- The temperature of the substance increased to 310°C at an oven temperature of 280°C.

- The temperature of the substance increased to >400°C at an oven temperature of 380°C.

The test substance sample was a black residue after the experiment.

Conclusions:
The substance has no self-ignition temperature up to the melting point of 288°C.
Executive summary:

A GLP study performed according to EC A.16 showed no self-ignition temperature for the substance up to the melting point of 288°C.
