Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
AES is auto-flammable under the conditions of the test.
Executive summary:

Applying a linear increase in temperature of about 0.5 °C/min, AES showed an exothermic reaction starting at about 240 °C. A maximum temperature of 414 °C was measured in the sample cube during the exothermic reaction. At the end of the measurement, the test item was swelled and colored black. AES shows a relative self-ignition temperature at about 334 °C.
