Results

Please see the illustration (picture/graph) section for the temperature/time curve.

Observations after the test.

The cube contained a lightweight, grey charred solid that had expanded in volume and was over-hanging the cube.

Conclusions:
The test item has been determined not to have a relative self-ignition temperature below 400°C.
Executive summary:

The test item was heated in an oven and the relative self ignition temperature determined. Testing was conducted using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A16 Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
