Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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.

+ positive response (flame, blast or deflagration)

- negative response (nothing or smoke only in 300 s period).

The lowest temperature giving a positive effect was 200 °C. The injected volume was 200 µL, the ignition delay was 64 s. At a temperature of 195 °C no ignition was observed.

The autoignition temperature of the test material was determined to be between 195 °C and 200 °C.

Description of key information

Autoignition temperature: 200 °C ± 10 °C (EU method A15)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
195 °C

Additional information

Givaudan (2011) determined that the autoignition temperature of the substance was 200 °C ± 10 °C using EU method A15, DIN 51794. The lowest temperature giving a positive effect was 200 °C. At a temperature of 195 °C, no ignition was observed. For the purpose of the "key value for chemical safety assessment", the lower value of 195 °C has been used.
