Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
In conclusion, Florhydral is auto-ignitable with a auto-ignition temperature of 245°C.
Executive summary:

The determination of the auto-ignition temperature of Florhydral was performed in accordance with EEC-directive 92/69 EEC, A.15 'Auto-ignition temperature (liquids and gases)', EEC Publication No. L383, December 1992 and DIN 51794 'Bestimmung der Zundtemperatur', 1978.

Test substance was injected into a test vessel at a temperature range between 200°C and 280°C. The test was performed in three-fold.

A lowest auto-ignition temperature of 248°C was found, with an injection volume of 150 microliters.

In conclusion, Florhydral is auto-ignitable with a auto-ignition temperature of 245°C.
