Reference
Endpoint:
auto-ignition temperature (liquids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From 2013-04-23 to 2013-04-26
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
The study was conducted according to an internationally recognised method, and under GLP. No deviation was reported. Substance ID is adequately specified with purity. Therefore full validation applies.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases))
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
IEC 60079-4 (Electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres. Part 4: Method of test for ignition temperature)
Version / remarks:
Anon (1987), Electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres. Part 4: Method of test for ignition temperature. IEC Publications 79-4, p1-19.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Remarks:

Specific details on test material used for the study:
Storage conditions: room temperature in the dark
Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
258 °C
Atm. press.:
>= 101.1 - <= 101.9 kPa

Detailed determinations are available in the experimental report.

accuracy: +/-5°C

Conclusions:
This parameter/method is not relevant for classification, however the information is useful regarding process safety and potential additional fire hazard.
No particular hazard is anticipated in normal conditions of storage.
Executive summary:

The auto-ignition temperature of the test substance was measured under GLP according to IEC 79-4 method (listed in EU A15 guideline).

The test substance was injected into a heated flask, until the lowest temperature at which ignition occurs was determined. The relevant parameters were recorded for the final result.

The auto-ignition temperature of the test substance has been determined to be 258 ± 5 °C.

Description of key information

No particular hazard is anticipated in normal conditions of storage.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
258 °C

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized IEC/EC method (as reported in the EU-method A.15) and under GLP, is available. It is therefore considered as a key study. The result is retained as key data.

This parameter is not relevant for classification, however the information is useful regarding process safety and potential additional fire hazard.
