Key result
Remarks on result:
other: Phenethyl Salicylate ignites only when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950°C is brought in contact with it.Thus it can be concluded that substance is flammable only at high temperature of about 950°C.
Conclusions:
Phenethyl Salicylate did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27 °C pressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Phenethyl Salicylate is not auto-flammable.
Executive summary:

Phenethyl Salicylate did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27 °C pressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Phenethyl Salicylate is not auto-flammable.
