Description of key information

The relative self-ignition temperature of the test item was determined according to the Guideline VDI 2263, sheet 1 (Grewer-oven) UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, fifth revised edition, 2009, Appendix 6.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
230 °C

Additional information

According to the guideline VDI 2263, sheet 1 (Grewer-Oven) a self-ignition of the test item was observed at 230 °C.

Due to these results the test item does not have to be classified as a “self-heating substance”, class 4.2 of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods / Manual of Tests and Criteria and according to chapter 2.11 [1] of the GHS (CLP) regulations.


[1] Chapter 2.11 of the UN Globally harmonized system of classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS), 4th revised edition, 2011 (UN GHS) and also chapter 2.11 in the CLP regulation1272/2008 (EU GHS).

The results apply only to the classes investigated. Therefore it cannot be excluded by this report that any other classifications have to be applied to the sample. The classification was done according to the criteria of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (Manual of Test and Criteria, 5th revised edition).
