1 013.25 hPa
Remarks on result:
The autoflammability temperature was determined to be 285.0 °C at 1013.25 hPa.
Executive summary:

The study on the auto flammability was carried out according to DIN 51 794. The autoflammability was reported to be 285.0 °C at 1013.25 hPa.

Description of key information

285 °C, DIN 51 794, BASF (1973)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
285 °C

Additional information

The available study from BASF AG (1973) on Autoflammability is relevant, adequate and reliable with restrictions (Klimisch 2) and its result is considered for the purpose of classification and labelling and risk assessment.

The Autoflammability temperature reported through a secondary source is reported to be 300 °C, at atmospheric pressure, and supporting the key study.
