Endpoint:
auto-ignition temperature (liquids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2015
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Identify: FAT 20290/C TE
Lot: TCC/02/2014/CR/002
Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
> 550 °C
Atm. press.:
101.325 kPa
Conclusions:
No auto-ignition observed up to 550 °C.
Executive summary:

The determination of the auto-ignition temperature of the test item FAT 20290/C was performed in accordance with the EEC Directive Annex V of 67/548 Test A 15 auto-ignition temperature for liquids. The temperature of the oven and the sample were continuously recorded while the temperature of the oven was increased to approximately 550 °C at a rate of about 3-5 °C/min. Then the test item is given drop by drop with pipette by cylinder hole into Erlenmeyer flask. Whether the heat development is due to a reaction of the test item with oxygen or due to exothermic decomposition is not relevant for the test. Self heating - with the possible consequence of self-ignition - occurs, when the rate of heat production exceeds the rate of heat loss to the surroundings. However, in this study, FAT 20290/C did not show auto-ignition until 550 °C.
