Description of key information

Chlorocresol is not auto flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The autoignition temperature or kindling point of a substance is the lowest temperature at which it will spontaneously ignite in a normal atmosphere without an external source of ignition, such as a flame or spark. The auto ignition temperature of chlorocresol was determined in the laboratory but it was found that this chemical do not catch fire at room temperature of 30°C and atmospheric pressure of 975 hPa. Thus it can be concluded that chlorocresol is not auto flammable.
