Key result
Relative self-ignition temperature:
> 400 °C
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions

Three repeated tests were performed.

The relative self-ignition temperature of CAS 577978-76-8: no ignition was observed up to 400°C. The test item presumably was melted, and the charred residue was found at the end of the test.

Conclusions:
The test item (CAS 577978-76-8) considered not to be auto-flammable under the conditions of the test.
Executive summary:

The purpose of this test was to provide information about the auto-flammability of solid substances at elevated temperatures. A specific amount of the test item was placed in the oven, in a wire-mesh cube at room temperature; the temperature - time curve of the test item was recorded, while the temperature of the oven was increased from about 30°C to a maximum of 400°C at a rate of 0.5°C/minute.

The self-ignition temperature as obtained by this method, is the minimum ambient temperature at which a certain volume of a test item is ignited under the defined conditions. Three replicate tests were performed.

The relative self-ignition temperature of the test item: no ignition was observed up to 400 °C.

The test item (CAS 577978-76-8) considered not to be auto-flammable under the conditions of the test.
