Description of key information

The test substance AlN (aluminium nitride) revealed no self-ignition at temperatures up to 400 ºC.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
400 °C

Additional information

In a test carried out in accordance with method EU A.16 a certain volume of AlN (aluminium nitride) was placed in an oven at room temperature. The temperature/time curve relating to conditions in the centre of the sample was recorded while the temperature of the oven was increased to 400 ºC, at a rate of 0.5 ºC/min.

No self-ignition occurred, since the sample thermocouple showed no very sharp temperature rise above the oven temperature.

The test substance AlN (aluminium nitride) revealed no self-ignition at temperatures up to 400 ºC.
