relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
July 1994 - February 1995
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Key result
Relative self-ignition temperature:
> 400 °C
Remarks on result:
other: At oven temperature of about 125 ºC, the sample temperature rises to about 285 ºC showing an exothermic reaction.

At oven temperature of about 125 ºC the sample temperature rises to about 285 ºC showing an exothermic reaction. The sample temperature does not reach 400 ºC by self-heating.

Conclusions:
No self-ignition occurs according to the test method.
Executive summary:

The auto-flammability study was carried out according to EU Method A 16.

At the oven temperature of about 125 ºC the sample temperature rises to about 285 ºC showing an exothermic reaction. However, the sample temperature does not reach 400 ºC by self-heating, therefore it can be assumed that no self-ignition occurs according to the test method.

Description of key information

Key study: Test method according to EU Method A.16. GLP study. No self-ignition occurs according to the test method.
