Results and discussion

Relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Remarks on result:
other: Test item started melting under decomposition at about 220 °C (see report C77426). Test item showed no relevant exothermic reaction between room temperature and 220 °C.
Remarks:
at atm. press. of 92.2 kPa

Any other information on results incl. tables

Test item showed no relevant exothermic reaction between room temperature and 220 °C, but a clear exothermic heat effect could be observed at an oven temperature at about 380 °C. As the above-mentioned guideline only applies to solids, the temperature range between 220 °C and 400 °C is not relevant for the present test item.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

During this study, the self-ignition temperature was determined according to Council Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008,, Part A, Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties, A.16 “Relative self-ignition temperature for solids".

Therefore, the test item was filled into a cube and heated in an oven. The temperatures of the oven and the sample were continuously recorded while the temperature of the oven was increased to approximately 400 °C. Test item started melting under decomposition at about 220 °C (see Harlan Laboratories study C77426). Test item showed no relevant exothermic reaction between room temperature and 220°C.
