Conclusion

The test item has been determined to have an auto-ignition temperature of 282 ± 5 °C.

Conclusions:
This parameter/method is not relevant for classification, however the information is useful regarding potential additional fire hazard. No particular hazard is anticipated in normal conditions of storage.
Executive summary:

The study was conducted under GLP according to procedure and demands of IEC 79 -4 method (listed in EU A.15 guideline).

Under the test conditions, the lowest temperature that will result in the ignition of the test item after being injected into the test flask was determined as 282 °C between 100.9 and 101.1 kPa. This value was determined using 0.2g of test substance. The test substance showed auto ignition after 49 seconds.

Description of key information

The auto-ignition temperature of the test item is stated as 282 °C (100.9 -101.1 kPa).

No particular hazard is anticipated in normal conditions of storage

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
282 °C

Additional information

A GLP fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized EU/IEC method, is available. Therefore, it is considered as a key study. The result is retained as key data.

This parameter is not relevant for classification, however the information is useful regarding process safety and potential additional fire hazard
