Key result
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point

No endothermic or exothermic effect of the test item was observed between 20°C and 308°C (test item melting point).

These observations confirmed that the test item is not self-ignitable.

After the experiment, the test item had turned into a brown residue and was collected in a container that was placed below the cube. It indicated that the test item had been molten, during the experiment.

Conclusions:
No signs of self-ignition was observed from 20°C up to the test item melting point.
Executive summary:

The self-ignition temperature of the test item

was determined according to a recognised guideline and in compliance with GLP (Brekelmans, 2018). No deviation from the guideline was observed in the study.

No signs of self-ignition was observed from 20°C up to the test item melting point (308°C).

Description of key information

The self-ignition temperature of the test item was detemined in a key study of Klimisch validity 1 performed according to recognised guidelines and under GLP.

No deviation from the guideline was observed in the study.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Based on the experimental results obtained in the key study, the test item is not classified for self-heating hazard according to GHS criteria. Indeed, no sign of self-ignition (up to the melting point) were observed in an study performed according to EU A.16 method on this solid test item.
