Description of key information

Auto ignition temperature [Fatty alcohols C16 – C18 (even numbered), branched and linear]: 240°C (EU Method A.15)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
240 °C

Additional information

A measured auto ignition temperature of 240°C at 1012 -1014 hPa was determined for the substance in accordance with EU Method A.15 but not in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and selected as key study. In a secondary source to which reliability could not be assigned, auto ignition temperature of 230°C was reported for the substance.
