Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
05 July 1990
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Version / remarks:
EEC/79/831, Annex V
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Relative self-ignition temperature:
> 400 °C
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions

A small exotherm reaction of the test substance occurs at a temperature of about 242 °C and leads to the temperature of 291 °C. After this, the temperature of the test substance was permanent over the oven temperature until the maximum temperature of 400 °C.

Conclusions:
No self ignition was registered until a temperature of 400 °C (Maximum oven temperature).
Executive summary:

Study conducted to EU test guidance EEC/79/831, Annex V. Part A.16 in compliance with GLP.

A small exotherm reaction of the test substance occurs at a temperature of about 242 °C and leads to the temperature of 291 °C. After this, the temperature of the test substance was permanent over the oven temperature until the maximum temperature of 400 °C.

No self ignition was registered until a temperature of 400 °C (Maximum oven temperature). The test substance is not considered to have the potential to auto-ignite.
