Description of key information

The substance has to be considered as auto-flammable under the conditions of the standard test.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
332 °C

Additional information

The determination of the relative self-ignition temperature of the test item FAT 40850/A TE was performed in a valid GLP study according to EU Method A.16. Applying a linear increase in temperature of about 0.5 °C/min, FAT 40850/A TE showed an exothermic reaction starting at about 262 °C. A maximum temperature of 537 °C was measured in the sample cube during the exothermic reaction. At the end of the measurement, the test item was carbonized and coloured grey, brown and black.

FAT 40850/A TE shows a relative self-ignition temperature of about 332 °C. Therefore, the test item FAT 40850/A TE is auto-flammable under the conditions of the test. The atmospheric pressure during the measurement was 98.5 kPa.
