Description of key information

The auto-ignition temperature of the substance was determined in a GLP compliant experimental investigation designed to be compatible with Method A15 Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008. The test flask was heated in a flask heater. Aliquots of test item (tested as received) were injected into the flask and the flask observed for signs of ignition over a 300 second period. This procedure was repeated, varying the sample size, as necessary, until the lowest temperature at which ignition occurred within 300 seconds of insertion was determined.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
202 °C

Additional information

The auto-ignition temperature of the substance is 202 ºC and the auto-ignition temperature of NExBTL renewable diesel (a UVCB substance of similar composition to the substance) was determined to be 204 ºC.
