Results and discussion

Relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Relative self-ignition temperature:
ca. 265 °C

other:

Any other information on results incl. tables

1 exothermic effect caused by decomposition between 235 and 270oC. The maximum tempertaure observed was 398oC.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The substance is considered to be not auto-flammable.
Executive summary:

The substance was tested according to the A16 auto-flammability method. One exothermic effect due to decomposition was noted but the maximum temperature did not reach 400oC so the substance is considered to be not auto-flammable.
