Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From August 25, 2017 to November 01, 2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
not specified
GLP compliance:
yes
Key result
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions
Remarks:
The test substance entered a very long, shallow endotherm at approximately 55°C and then rose up at 234°C into a very shallow exotherm but did not reach 400°C by self-heating. On completion of testing a black solid residue remained.

Result

During the study, the test substance entered a very long, shallow endotherm at approximately 55°C and then rose up at 234°C into a very shallow exotherm but did not reach 400°C by self-heating. On completion of testing a black solid residue remained. Based on the study result, the study author concluded that no self ignition of the test substance was observed.

Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, no self ignition of the test substance was observed.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the relative self ignition temperature of the test substance, 'iso and anteiso C10-40 AAP EDM-ES', according to EU Method A.16, in compliance with GLP. During the study, the test substance entered a very long, shallow endotherm at approximately 55°C and then rose up at 234°C into a very shallow exotherm but did not reach 400°C by self-heating. On completion of testing a black solid residue remained. Under the study conditions, no self ignition of the test substance was observed (Chilworth, 2017).

Description of key information

The relative self ignition temperature for the test substance was determined according to EU Method A.16 (Chilworth, 2017).

Key value for chemical safety assessment
