Specific details on test material used for the study:
SOURCE OF TEST MATERIAL
- Source and lot/batch No.of test material: WP2/96
- Expiration date of the lot/batch: November 30, 2004

STABILITY AND STORAGE CONDITIONS OF TEST MATERIAL
- Storage condition of test material: At room temperature at about 20 °C.
Relative self-ignition temperature:
289 °C
Remarks on result:
other: At the end of the test, FAT45'176/A coloured black.
Conclusions:
FAT 45'176/A shows a relative self ignition temperature of about 289 °C and is considered auto-flammable.
Executive summary:

The determination of the relative self-ignition temperature of FAT 45176/A was performed according to the EU A.16 guideline. Applying a linear increase in temperature of about 0,5 °C/min, FAT 45'176/A showed an exothermic reaction starting at about 244 °C. A maximum temperature of about 518 °C was measured in the sample cube during the exothermic reaction. At the end of the measurement, the test article was coloured black. FAT 45'176/A shows a relative self ignition temperature of about 289 °C.

In conclusion, FAT 45'176/A is auto-flammable, according to the criteria as described in the guideline.
