Administrative data

Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the flash point is only relevant to liquids and low melting point solids
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
The substance is a powder with no melting point.
Cross-reference

Remarks:
peak at 260.53°C
Conclusions:
The DSC shows an endothermic peak which covers a wide range between 39°C and 222°C, with a peak at 139°C.
Executive summary:

A determination of the thermal stability of the test item by DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry) was performed with a DSC Mettler TOLEDO DSC 1, using a perforated crucible.

The DSC shows an endothermic peak which covers a wide range between 39°C and 222°C, with a peak at 139°C. This endothermic peak is considerably broad, over 180°C. It does not seems to be melting point. It might be a relaxation phenomena due to the evaporation of water.
