Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test material has been determined not to have an auto-ignition temperature below 400°C.
Executive summary:

METHOD.

The auto-ignition temperature was determined by heating aliquots of the test material in a flask and observing for any ignition. Testing was conducted Method A15 Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

 

CONCLUSION.

The test material has been determined not to have an auto-ignition temperature below 400°C.
