relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
6 April 2011
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Version / remarks:
2008
Deviations:

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

- Three replicate tests were performed.

- No ignition was observed up to 119°C (the melting point of the test material)

Conclusions:
Under the conditions of this study, no ignition was observed up to 119°C (the melting point of the test material).
Executive summary:

The relative self-ignition temperature of the test material was investigated in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.16, under GLP conditions.

A certain volume of the test material was placed in an oven at room temperature; the temperature / time curve was recorded while the temperature of the oven was increased to 400°C or to the melting point, at a rate of 0.5°C/min. For the purpose of this test, the temperature of the oven at which the test material sample temperature reached 400°C by self-heating was called the self-ignition temperature. Three replicate tests were performed.

Under the conditions of this study, no ignition was observed up to 119°C (the melting point of the test material).

Description of key information

Under the conditions of the study, no ignition was observed up to 119°C (the melting point of the test material).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The relative self-ignition temperature of the test material was investigated in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.16, under GLP conditions. The study was awarded a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria set forth by Klimisch et al. (1997).

A certain volume of the test material was placed in an oven at room temperature; the temperature / time curve was recorded while the temperature of the oven was increased to 400°C or to the melting point, at a rate of 0.5°C/min. For the purpose of this test, the temperature of the oven at which the test material sample temperature reached 400°C by self-heating was called the self-ignition temperature. Three replicate tests were performed.

Under the conditions of the study, no ignition was observed up to 119°C (the melting point of the test material).
