Key result
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions
Temperatrue range tested: 25-400 ºC, beyond decomposition temperature (220 ºC)

Temperature of the test substance rose depnding on incrasing temperature of oven within the wole measurement. No sharp temperature rise (exothermic reaction) was observed within recording of the temprarature/time curve. The same result was obtained from trepeating measurement.

The temperature range tested is 25 -400 ºC, which includes melting of the substance ( 167 ºC) and decomposition of the substance (220 - 305 ºC).

The substance does not self-ignite in the temperature range tested (25 - 400 ºC).

Description of key information

The substance does not self-ignite in the temperature range 25 to 400 ºC (melting temperature at 167 ºC and decomposition temperature at 220 - 305 ºC)

Key value for chemical safety assessment
