Auto-ignition temperature:
ca. 538 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 1 atm
Based on the results of the read across substance, vinyl toluene, the test substance auto flammability temperature was determined at 538°C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the auto flammability of the read across substance, vinyl toluene. The data were obtained from a peer reviewed publication of the National Fire Protection Association. Under the study conditions, the test substance auto flammability temperature was determined to be 538°C (Quincy, 1997).
