Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The autoflammability temperature of the xylene isomers and ethylbenzene ranges from 432 to 528˚C. The auto flammability of m-xylene is 527˚C, for o-xylene it is 463˚C, for p-xylene it is reported as 528˚C and for ethylbenzene it is reported as 432°C. The mean value of 488˚C will be used for the risk assessment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
488 °C

Additional information

The CRC Handbook (2008) is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.
