Room temperature:  19°C

Atmospheric pressure: 99.44 to 99.52 kPa

Conclusions:
An auto-ignition temperature of 270 ± 5 at 99.44 - 99.52 kPa. The result was obtained in a reliable study conducted according to EU Method A.15, and in compliance with GLP.

Description of key information

Auto flammability: 270°C at 99.44 - 99.52 kPa (EU Method A.15)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
270 °C

Additional information

A reliable auto-ignition temperature value of 270°C at 99.44 - 99.52 kPa has been determined for the test substance in accordance with an appropriate test method and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable. Auto-ignition is not expected to present a hazard for the test substance.
