Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item is observed at 215 °C ± 1 °C (corrected value).
Executive summary:

The determination of the flash point was performed according to the Regulation (EC) n°440/2008, A.9: “FLASH POINT”, May 2008 using a Pensky-Martens apparatus.

The preliminary test searches for the flash point with a temperature increment of 5 °C. For the main test, the same operation as for the preliminary test was repeated until a flash was observed, but this time with temperature steps of 0.5 °C.

The flash point of the test item is observed at 215 °C ± 1 °C (corrected value).
