Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The flash point of the test material has been determined to be 69 ± 2°C.
Executive summary:

The flash point was determined using a closed cup equilibrium method, Method A9 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

An aliquot (2 ml) of the test material was injected into the sample cup of the the Setaflash 13740-2 tester. The sample was heated and allowed to equilibrate at the set temperature. The test flame was introduced into the sample cup for approximately 2 seconds by sliding the cup shutter open.  Observations were made for ignition of the vapour.  If no ignition occurred, the temperature was increased and the test flame re-introduced.  This was repeated until the lowest reproducible temperature at which a flash occurred, using a fresh sample, was determined.

The flash point of the test material has been determined to be 69 ± 2°C.
