relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
May from 02 to 04, 2018
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
according to guideline
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
The test item was used in its initial form.
Remarks on result:
no self-ignition observed up to the melting point
i.e. at ca 209 °C
No self-ignition up to the melting point, i.e. at ca 209 °C
Executive summary:

The relative self-ignition temperature of the test item was determined in accordance with the method described in the EU method A.16. A certain volume of the test item was placed into an oven at ambient temperature; the temperature/time curve was recorded while the temperature of the oven was increased up to 400 °C, at a rate of approximately 0.5 °C/min. Three replicate tests were performed.

In the course of the study, the test item did not self-ignite up to the melting point, i.e. at ca 209 °C. Thus, no self-ignition temperature could be stated.


No self-ignition up to the melting point, i.e. at ca 209 °C
