The flash point is taken as the rounded mean value of the two measurements that conform to the norm,128 °C.

The mean atmospheric pressure was 101.7 kPa; the result quoted is corrected to standard atmospheric pressure, 101.3 kPa.

Based on the general experience with the method, the error is quoted as ± 2 °C.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item is 128 ± 2 °C at 101.3 kPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point of the test substance was determined according to EU method A.9 and DIN EN ISO 2719 using a Pensky-Martens apparatus. At 101.3 kPa, the flash point is 128 +/- 2 °C.
