Additional information

In the Klimisch 1 key study from Holzschuh (2010) which was performed according to EU method A.16 there was no measurable self-ignition of the AEROSOL® OT 100% Surfactant containing > 97% Socusate Sodium below 180 °C. Above the melting point (165 - 170°C) the substance has flown out through the wire mesh.
