relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
13 Jan - 16 Jan 2017
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Version / remarks:
adopted in 2008
GLP compliance:
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Storage conditions: Ambient temperature (10 to 30 °C), dry
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions
No self-ignition temperature of test item up to 400 °C.

An endothermic effect was seen in the temperature range 115 – 190 °C. From ca. 195 to 205 °C, a small exothermic effect was seen (peak temperature 211 °C). No further significant exothermic effect was determined up to the test temperature of 400 °C. The test item displayed a discolouring from white to black and had swollen up during the test.

Conclusion: No self-ignition temperature was observed up to a test temperature of 400 °C. 


Description of key information

No self-ignition (EU Method A.16.)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a test according to EU Method A.16. no self-ignition was observed up to the test temperature of 400 °C.
