Link to relevant study record(s)

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.
