Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2 October 1991 - 16 January 1992
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Study conducted to GLP in compliance with agreed protocols, with no or minor deviations from standard test guidelines and/or minor methodological deficiencies, which do not affect the quality of the relevant results.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Relative self-ignition temperature:
> 400 °C
Remarks on result:
other:

No ignition was detected below 400 °C which was the upper temperature limit of this test.

Conclusions:
The test material is not auto-flammable.
Executive summary:

The auto-flammability of the test material was investigated in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.16.

The test material was heated to the upper temperature limit for the test, 400 °C, without self-ignition. Therefore the test material is not auto-flammable.

Description of key information

 The auto-flammability of the test material was assessed according to EU Method A16. This test is applicable to explosive substances and substances which ignite spontaneously on contact with air. Testing on explosivity and on substances which ignite spontaneously on contact with air has been performed and the test material does not fall into either category. The test material is not auto-flammable.

Additional information

The auto-flammability of the test material was investigated in accordance with GLP and the standardised guideline EU Method A.16.

The test material was heated to the upper temperature limit for the test, 400 °C, without self-ignition. Therefore the test material is not auto-flammable.
