Description of key information

The auto ignition temperature of Aldehyde M was determined to be 160 °C at 1013.25 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
160 °C

Additional information

A study was to determine the auto-ignition temperature of Aldehyde M according to Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.15 and DIN 51794 Three independent determinations were conducted. The auto-ignition temperature was determined to be 162 °C as lowest value of three determinations. According to the criteria as laid down in DIN 51794 the auto ignition temperature is the lowest value from the lowest values of the three experiments, rounded down to a whole multiple of 5 °C. Therefore, the auto ignition temperature is stated as 160 °C. The three lowest values of the main study lay within a range of 10 K. No observations were made which might cause doubts concerning the validity of the study outcome. Thus, the validation criteria were fulfilled.
