Endpoint:
auto-ignition temperature (liquids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
10 - 16 November 2015
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study

Based on results of the main test series, the lowest auto-ignition temperature was 248 °C. Results are within the required range of 10 °C, therefore the validity criterion is fulfilled.

The auto-ignition temperature rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5 °C was determined as 245 °C.

Conclusions:
The auto-ignition temperature of the test substance has been determined to be 245 °C.
This parameter/method is not relevant for classification, however the information is useful regarding potential additional fire hazard. No particular hazard is anticipated in normal conditions of storage.
Executive summary:

The substance was tested for its autoflammable properties, according to EU method A.15 and Standard DIN 51794. Test substance was injected into a heated flask, until the lowest temperature at which ignition occurs was determined. The lowest value of the three determinations was retained.

The auto-ignition temperature of the test substance has been determined to be 245 °C at 1004.2-1012.3 hPa.

Description of key information

No particular hazard is anticipated in normal conditions of storage. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
245 °C

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized DIN/IEC/EU method, and under GLP, is available. Therefore, it is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.

This parameter is not relevant for classification, however the information is useful regarding process safety and potential additional fire hazard.
