Auto-flammability: 200 - 212°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There are no reliable measured auto-ignition data for the registration substance. However, reliable data are available for related substances in the relevant carbon number range, including other Fischer-Tropsch process-derived substances.

In EU Method A.15 studies, which were conducted in compliance with GLP, Hydrocarbons, C10-C13, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (GS190), Hydrocarbons, C12-C15, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (GS215) and Hydrocarbons, C14-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (GS250) had measured auto-ignition temperature values of 212 ± 5°C at 100.6 -101.9 kPa,

200 ± 5°C at 97.1 - 100.8 kPa and 204 ± 5°C at 99.8 - 100.8 kPa, respectively. The results are considered to be reliable and are used as weight of evidence.
