The abundance of the primary C-H site available for H-abstraction also justifies the lower ignitability of iso-octane at high temperatures.
When complete data were available, however, all still bottoms were determined to be federal hazardous wastes or state-only dangerous wastes according to at least one of the following endpoints: state-only toxicity (fish bioassay), state-only persistence (HOCs), and the federal characteristic of ignitability (flash point) (Table 3).
Code of Federal Regulations, 40 CFR Part 261; and/or 3) exhibit the hazardous waste characteristic of ignitability because of the presence of one or more non-listed solvents.
Ignitability of building products using a radiant heat source].
A waste product is considered hazardous "if it exhibits one or more characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity or toxicity or if it is specifically listed as a hazardous waste" under the RCRA.
The total heat evolved (THE), corresponding to fire load, ignitability (time to ignition), and flammability (reaction to a small flame: LOI, UL 94) usually shows only little or no improvement in nanocomposites.
Witherspoon also suggests that policy makers would benefit from reviewing the underlying assumptions of laws passed long ago that may no longer be on target, such as cigarette ignitability standards for mattresses and mattress pads (5) in an era when far fewer people are smoking in bed.
Thinner electrodes result in less obstruction of spark growth (quenching), meaning better ignitability.
The automaker has also launched an iridium tough spark plug that ensures higher ignitability than the normal plugs.
