Thermally Unstable

A material that will undergo an exothermic, self-sustaining or accelerating self-reaction (decomposition, polymerization or rearrangement) when heated to a specific temperature for given conditions of pressure, volume, composition and containment. Thus, the self-reaction can be initiated by thermal energy alone. CCPS 1995b
