Administrative data

relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a solid having a melting point <= 160°C
Justification for type of information:
According to REACH Annex VII column 2, the study does not need to be conducted i.a. for solids, if the substance has a melting point ≤ 160°C, or if preliminary results exclude self-heating of the substance up to 400°C. In a study according to OECD 102/103 using DSC measurement, it was shown that the substance melts under decomposition. The melting point is given in a range of 112.57°C (385.72 K) to 262.70°C (535.85 K). So, the substance starts to melt way below 160°C. Further, the substance was heated up to 450°C, and no indication was given that the substance is self-heating. Hence, testing can be waived.
