Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
heatinge range was 0.59 K/min
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The heating rate of the oven over the complete heating range was 0.59 K/min instead of 0.5 K/ min. This was considered uncritical as self-heating over 400 °C could be only observed above the decomposition temperature of the test item.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)

Test material

Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Test material form:
solid: particulate/powder
Remarks:
migrated information: powder

Results and discussion

Relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Relative self-ignition temperature:
> 361.5 - < 371 °C
Remarks on result:
other: test item is known to decompose at temperatures above 200 °C

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
As the test item is known to decompose at temperatures above 200 °C it can be considered that the auto-flammability up to 371 °C under the test conditions is caused by decomposition products of the test item.
