Results and discussion

Relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Relative self-ignition temperature:
276 °C
Remarks on result:
other: test performed at ambient pressure, no pressure reading on the day of measurement reported

Any other information on results incl. tables

An exothermic effect was observed at an oven temperature of 276°C. At this temperature, the temperature of the test substance reached 400°C. Therefore, this temperature was considered as the self-ignition temperature of the test substance.

During the experiment, the test substance had turned into a charred residue. It confirms that the test substance had decomposed and/or reacted during the experiment.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The self-ignition temperature of E-BW102 was determined according to EU method A.16 using a temperature programmed laboratory oven, a stainless steel wire mesh cube, NiCr/NiAl thermocouples and a temperature recording device. The self-ignition temperature of the test substance is 276°C.
