The self-ignition temperature of MDEA-Esterquat was investigated in a study conducted according to EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids; 2008). Measurements were carried out in the temperature range from 20 to 54°C (melting temperature). No significant endothermic or exothermic effect was recorded between 20°C and the melting point. Based on this result, MDEA-Esterquat is considered to be not self-ignitable between 20°C and the melting temperature (54°C).

Conclusions:
MDEA-Esterquat C16-18 and C18 unsatd. proved to be not self-ignitable between 20°C and the melting temperature (54°C) in a study conducted according to EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids; 2008).
Executive summary:

MDEA-Esterquat C16-18 and C18 unsatd. proved to be not self-ignitable between 20°C and the melting temperature (54°C) in a study conducted according to EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids; 2008).

Description of key information
