Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
272 °C

Additional information

Auto flammability testing could have been waived in accordance with the restrictions in the Corrigendum to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European parliament and of the council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), Annex VII, 7.12., p L 136/105, column 2, published 2007-05-29 in the Official Journal of the European Union. The flash point of the submission item is above the cut-off value of 200 °C (Tremain & Atwal 2011, Harlan Report no. 41103264). As the determined value of 201.42 ± 2 °C is close to the limit, an experimental approach was considered.

The auto-ignition temperature was determined in a GLP-compliant study (Tremain & Atwal 2011, Harlan Report no. 41103264) by heating aliquots of the submission item in a flask and observing for any ignition according to the EU A.15 (2008) protocol. The experiment is deemed valid, conclusive and thus suitable for assessment without restrictions. The auto-ignition temperature was determined to be 272 ± 5 °C.
