Description of key information

The auto-ignition temperature of Bourgeonal was determined to be 360°C +/- 10 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
350 °C

Additional information

The auto-ignition temperature of Bourgeonal was determined in a SUR BERLIN oven, equipped with a 250mL glass ignition vessel according to DIN 51794. At a temperature of 350 °C no ignition was observed. The lowest temperature giving a positive effect was 360 °C. Therefore, the auto-ignition temperature of the test substance was found to be 360 ± 10 °C. The +/- 10 °C refers to the reproducibility of the method as specified by the guideline.

According to the guidelines the lowest temperature giving a positive effect should be rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5 °C. However, since more temperatures in the range 350°C to 360°C were not tested a conservative value of 350°C has been chosen for the purposes of the CSA even though no ignition was observed at 350°C.
