Details on test material:
Particle size <= 100 µm
Water content 0.1 % (w/w)

Results and discussion

Results:
The minimal ignition energy is > 1 mJ and < 3 mJ

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The substance minimal ignition energy is comprised between 1 and 3 mJ, that allows concluding that it is very sensitive to ignition.
Executive summary:

The minimum ignition energy of a substance sample sieved < 100 µm and 0.1¨% (w/w) water content has been tested in a MIKE 3 (Hartmann modified tube) apparatus. Atmospheric humidity was 49.5 % (w/w). The limits were found to be > 1 mJ and < 3 mJ.
