Description of key information

The Auto ignition temperature was determined to be 359°C at 745 mm Hg according to the ASTM E659 method.
The test was performed in accordance with the procedure and within the linear range of the calibration. The result is therefore valid.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
359 °C

Additional information

A reliability rating of 2 was assigned to the key study, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997 as the study was conducted in accordance the ASTM E659 method, however there was no GLP data and limited information on methods and results.

The substance is composed of a series of alkylated phenol species of variable composition and a highly refined, lubricant base oil necessary to act as a solvent for the synthetic reaction and to optimize the reaction kinetics used in the substance’s manufacture. Attempts to remove this base oil from the substance result in changes to the other components’ original structures and the physicochemical characteristics of the substance as a whole. With this in mind, the substance is being registered to include the base oil as a component of the substance and thus the base oil is present in the test material.
