Check the SFPE Handbook, Ignition Handbook, etc.  Finding these values is sometimes hard and it often times may not be exactly the same material that you are intending to use in your project.  The best way, albeit expensive, is to send a sample of your material off for testing to experimentally determine your material's flame characteristics.
