Favorable travel temperature range: below 25 °C (77 °F)

Optimum travel temperature: 21 °C (70 °F)

Glow temperature: 205 °C (401 °F)

Fire point: 210 °C (410 °F)

Autoignition temperature: 360 °C (680 °F) - 425 °C (797 °F)[93]

Autoignition temperature (for oily cotton): 120 °C (248 °F)

A temperature range of 25 to 35 °C (77 to 95 °F) is the optimal range for mold development. At temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F), rotting of wet cotton stops. Damaged cotton is sometimes stored at these temperatures to prevent further deterioration.[94]

Egypt has a unique climatic temperature that the soil and the temperature provide an exceptional environment for cotton to grow rapidly.
