test

The flash point of a flammable liquid is the lowest temperature at

which there will be enough flammable vapor to ignite when an

ignition source is applied.

Interpretation of results:
Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point determination of test chemical was performed by closed cup method using Abel's Flash Point Apparatus. The mean flash point of the test chemical was observed to be 42.3°C at 964.9 hPa. Thus test chemical consider to be in classification criteria of Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of  test chemical was performed by closed cup method using Abel's Flash Point Apparatus. The mean flash point of the test chemical was observed to be 42.3°C at 964.9 hPa. Thus test chemical consider to be in classification criteria of Category 3 (flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria.
