Results and discussion

Relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Relative self-ignition temperature:
> 170 °C
Remarks on result:
other: The test item has been determined not to have a relative self-ignition temperature below its melting temperature.

Any other information on results incl. tables

The test item was a pale brown solid.Whilst heating the test item, no relevant exothermic reaction/self-heating of the sample was observed. The temperature/time curve is attached in background material. On completion of the test, the test item was a very soft beige colored paste.

Applicant's summary and conclusion
