Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Study was carried out according to generally valid and internationally accepted testing guidelines and under GLP. Test substance is adequately characterised. Therefore full validation applies.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to same study
according to guideline
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Version / remarks:
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Inspection date : 15-17 Otober 2001 ; Certificate date : 17 December 2001
Key result
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point
at atm. pressure

No exothermic effects were observed during the experiment. At a temperature of approximately 262°C, the substance melted. The brown residue recovered inside the sample cube after the test weighed 0.12 g.

The test was performed at ambient pressure, not measured.

No self-ignition was observed up to the melting point.
Executive summary:

The relative self-ignition temperature of test item was determined acccording to EU method A.16 and under GLP.

No self-ignition was observed up to the melting point.This data is considered as a key data.

Description of key information

No relative self-ignition temperature.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized EC method and under GLP, is available. It is considered as a key study.
