Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Reference:
Composition 1
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Test material information:
Composition 1
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point
Remarks:
It is believed that the sample melted and decomposed

The sample entered a small endotherm before rising up into a large exotherm. The sample then continued to track the oven temperature for the duration of the test. The sample is believed to have melted and decomposed as a black crispy product remained on the bottom of the oven. Therefore no self-ignition was recorded.

Conclusions:
The sample entered a small endotherm before rising up into a large exotherm. The sample then continued to track the oven temperature for the duration of the test. The sample is believed to have melted and decomposed as a black crispy product remained on the bottom of the oven. Therefore no self-ignition was recorded.
Executive summary:

The test was conducted in accordance with the procedure described in EU Regulation (EC) 440/2008, Annex Part A test A16. The sample entered a small endotherm before rising up into a large exotherm. The sample then continued to track the oven temperature for the duration of the test. The sample is believed to have melted and decomposed as a black crispy product remained on the bottom of the oven. Therefore no self-ignition was recorded.

Description of key information

No self-ignition was observed up to the melting point of the substance. It is believed that the sample melted and decomposed
