Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
> 200 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm
Remarks on result:
The self-ignition temperature is min. 200°C.
Executive summary:

The self-ignition temperature of the lower boiling component, has been reported from Yaws' Handbook as minimum 200°C.

Description of key information

There is no data available for Hydrocarbons, C15-C16, n-alkanes, <2% aromatics. However, data is available for a structural analogue, Pentadecane and presented in the dossier. This data is read across to Hydrocarbons, C15-C16, n-alkanes, <2% aromatics based on analogue read across and a discussion and report on the read across strategy is provided as an attachment in IUCLID Section 13.

The self-ignition temperature for Pentadecane is above 200°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
