The test item contains a
residual moisture of 0.7 wt.-% which was determined by drying the test
item under reduced pressure (approximately 100 mbar) at a temperature of
The pure product indicated a
weak exothermal process at 150 °C followed directly by an endothermic
process (e.g. melting). In the measurement up to about 400 °C the
substance flowed out of the basket. For the pure substance no
self-ignition was detected. The product in mixture with Kieselguhr
indicates a self ignition starting at 140 °C.
In the investigation of
self-ignition in the Grewer-oven for the pure test item a weak
exothermal process was detected at a temperature of 150 °C directly
followed by an endothermic process at app. 280 °C. The temperature
increase during the exothermal process was negligible. The endothermic
process can be attributed to the melting of the test item (melting point
of the test item 190 °C). After the measurement the basket of the pure
test item is empty. The complete test item flowed out of the basket.
This indicates that the test item liquefied over the measurement up to
400 °C and flowed out of the wire basket before the self-heating took
For the test item in mixture
with Kieselguhr an exothermal process was determined at a temperature of
140 °C leading to a maximum temperature of app. 240 °C. A second
exothermal effect was observed at 210 °C leading to a maximum
temperature of > 500 °C.
