Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 auto-ignition temperature of CTFE is 566°C at 73.6 PSIA (5.01 atm)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A well documented study is available reporting that chlorotrifluoroethylene has an auto-ignition temperature of 566°C at 73.6 PSIA (5.01 atm)

Information regarding the auto-ignition temperature of chlorotrifluoroethylene was also sourced from another study of Klimisch-3 reliability which reports that neat CTFE does not autoignite even at 550°C. Autoignition does not occur when CTFE gas under pressure is suddenly released (by means of a bursting rupture disc) into a pipe filled with air at atmospheric pressure.
