Results and discussion

Relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Remarks on result:
other: There was no exothermic reaction of the test substance, indicating that it does not self-ignite below 450 °C.

Any other information on results incl. tables

No trace of the test substance remained in the cube.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the test, it was concluded that the test substance is not autoflammable.
Executive summary:

The relative self-ignition temperature of the test substance was determined in accordance with standardised guideline EU Method A.16. No ignition was detected at temperatures below 450 ºC. At the end of the test, the sample cube was observed to be empty which is consistent with the test substance melting during the test.
