Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the study, the lowest temperature at which auto-ignition occurred was 270 °C at a volume of 100 µL. The barometric pressure during testing was 770 mm Hg (102.66 kPa).
Executive summary:

The auto-ignition temperature of the test material was determined under GLP conditions during a study conducted in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.15. Under the conditions of the study, the lowest temperature at which auto-ignition occurred was 270 °C at a volume of 100 µL. The barometric pressure during testing was 770 mm Hg.

Description of key information

Experimental study conducted according to recognised testing guideline with GLP certification.

Additional information

The auto-ignition temperature of the test material was determined under GLP conditions during a study conducted in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.15. Under the conditions of the study, the lowest temperature at which auto-ignition occurred was 270 °C at a volume of 100 µL. The barometric pressure during testing was 770 mm Hg.

The study was performed in line with GLP and an accepted standardised guideline with a good level of reporting. The study was therefore assigned a reliability score of 1 and considered suitable for assessment as an accurate reflection of the substance.

The available data are considered to be complete and the result determined, auto-ignition temperature 270 °C at 770 mm Hg, was taken forward for risk assessment.
