Any other information on results incl. tables

The determination of the flash-point of DC 5067 was performed in duplicate. Flash point temperatures determined during the performance of the test were 60°C and 63°C, respectively. The mean flash point temperature was calculated to be 61.5°C. The mean flash point was corrected for the atmospheric pressure. In conclusion, the flash point of DC 5067 was determined to be 61°C under the conditions of the test.

Applicant's summary and conclusion
