Key result
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point
Conclusions:
The test material did not exhibit auto-flammability
Executive summary:

The test substance was tested for auto-flammability according to EU method A.16. The test substance was placed in an open-topped stainless-steel wire-mesh cube of side length 20 mm, and suspended centrally in an oven. The oven temperature was programmed to increase at a rate of 0.5°C per min from room temperature up to 400°C. The oven air temperature and the temperature at the center of the test sample were monitored throughout the test using fine-wire thermocouples and any signs of exothermic activity were recorded.

The test material did not exhibit auto-flammability.

No ignition was detected before the sample melted, as indicated by an endotherm at approximately 72°C.
