Key result
Relative self-ignition temperature:
399 °C
Remarks on result:
at atm. press. of 97.0 kPa

Three replicate tests were performed. The relative self-ignition temperature of PURACAL PP/USP was 399 °C at atmospheric conditions (97.0 kPa)

The relative self-ignition temperature was 399 °C.
Executive summary:

In a GLP study conducted according to EU Method A.16, the relative self ignition temperature of calcium (S)-lactate was determined with 399 °C at atmospheric conditions (97.0 kPa).
