The flash point of Finester 2009 was detirmined using the Pensky Martens Method.

The flash point of Finester 2009 was concluded to be >300 degrees, at the normal atmospheric pressure and the test was completed at that point as no flash point was osberved in the sample cup upto 300 degrees and on further heating fumes started emananting from the rim of the sample cup and heance no further heating was carried out.
