Conclusions:
Auto- ignition temperature: 242 °C
Executive summary:

In a guideline test according to EU Method A15, the auto-ignition temperature of the test material was determined to be 242 °C.

Description of key information

Auto ignition temperature: 242 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
242 °C

Additional information

The auto-ignition temperature of the test chemical was determined to be 242 °C indicating the self-ignition will not readily occur under normal atmospheric temperature.
