Any other information on results incl. tables

The self-ignition temperature, as obtained by this method, is the minimum ambient temperature expressed in [°C] at which a certain volume of a substance ignites under defined conditions. Temperature measurement data and any heat effects observed between room temperature and about 226 °C were evaluated. If an exothermic reaction of the test item appears, the sample thermocouple shows a sharp temperature rise above the oven temperature. The temperature of the oven at which the sample reaches 400 °C by self-heating is stated as the self-ignition temperature of the test item.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test item was a white powder. Whilst heating the test item, no relevant exothermic reaction/self-heating of the sample has been observed. On completion of the test, the test item had melted.
Executive summary:

The test item has been determined not to have a relative self-ignition temperature below its melting temperature.
