Auto ignition temperature determination:

Auto ignition temperature: 305 ºC

Cool-Flame Auto ignition temperature: 300 ºC

Exothermic Activity down to: 300 ºC

Barometric Pressure. 760 mmHg

Injection quantity: 0.2 cm3

Ignition Delay Time: 12.2 s

Lower and upper flammable limit determination at 100 ºC:

LFL: 1.7 (% v/v in air)

UFL: 18.5 (% v/v in air)

Conclusions:
The auto ignition temperature for 2-methylcyclohexyl acetate was determined to be 305 ºC at 760 mmHg with exothermic activity and cool flames observed at 300 ºC. The flammable limits of the material have been determined to be 1.7 % and 18.5 % v/v in air at 100 ºC.
Executive summary:

The determination of auto ignition temperature was performed according to ASTM standard E659 -78 (included in the EU method A.15). The auto ignition temperature for 2-methylcyclohexyl acetate was determined to be 305 ºC at 760 mmHg with exothermic activity and cool flames observed at 300 ºC. The flammable limits of the material have been determined to be 1.7 % and 18.5 % v/v in air at 100 ºC.
