Description of key information

The solid substance shows no autoflammability according to the criteria of the EU method A.16. The molten substance shows an auto-ignition temperature of 365 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Inspite of the effect, that the substance is a solid with a melting point < 160°C, the A.16. test was accomplished to be sure, that no effects, which may inhibit a complete melting (like incrustations) under the test conditions can influence the result. Beside this, the A.16 test is similar to the Grewer oven test (VDI-Richtlinie 2263), which can be used as screening test for the self-heating property according the CLP regulation.

Also the A.15. test (concerning the auto flammability of a liquid) was accomplished, because TAA is frequently handled in the molten state.
