Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
295 °C
Atm. press.:
>= 989.9 - <= 1 016.8 hPa
Remarks on result:

Preliminary test:

The estimated auto-ignition temperature was 310 °C.

Main study:

Ignition of the test substance within 5 minutes after introduction was observed with each sample volume and with each test a minimum auto-ignition temperature was obtained. The maximum deviation between the three values was < 10 °C. According to the guidelines, no further testing was required. The lowest temperature at which ignition of the test substance occurred was 299 °C. This temperature was rounded off to the nearest multiple of 5 °C giving an auto-ignition temperature of the test substance of 295 °C.

The auto-ignition temperature of verdox is 295°C.
Executive summary:

The auto-ignition temperature of Verdox was investigated according to EC method A15 (DIN 51794). The auto-ignition temperature was 295 °C at 989.9 -1016.8 hPa.
