Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
As the melting point of AVE 5530 EVA-KET was found to be 92.6 °C, determination of the self-ignition temperature is not required.
Executive summary:

The test method for the determination of the self-ignition temperature of a substance, as described for solid materials in Test Guideline A.16 of EC Directive 92/69/EEC, was replaced by a theory based evaluation.

According to REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 of 18 December 2006 and its Corrigendum, dated 30 December 2006, the determination of self-ignition temperature is not required for substances with a melting point ≤ 160 °C.

As the melting point of AVE 5530 EVA-KET was determined at 92.6 °C, determination of self-ignition temperature is not required.
