Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
167 °C
Atm. press.:
100.9 kPa
Remarks on result:
other: No cool flames were observed. Ignition produced an orange flame and grey smoke.

The auto-ignition temperature was corrected for barometric pressure.

Time lag at the auto-ignition temperature was 24 sec.

Sample quantity: 200 µL.

The auto-ignition temperature of the substance was determined to be 167 °C at 100.9 kPa.

Description of key information

The auto-ignition temperature of the test substance was determined in a GLP study according to test method EC A.15 to be 167 °C at 1009 hPa (Younis, 2011).

Key value for chemical safety assessment
