As the approximate value of the flash point was known the performance of the preliminary test was not necessary. In the main test the data points were determined by heating rate 1 K/min, as proposed in DIN EN ISO 13736.

The mean flash point corrected to 1013 hPa is <-30.0 °C.

Due to the flash point being lower than the range of the measurement no further correction was done. The final flash point is stated as being lower than -30 °C.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The flash point of the test item is < -30.0 °C under atmospheric conditions (1013.3 hPa).
Executive summary:
Due to the flash point being lower than the range of the measurement no further correction was done. The final flash point is stated as being lower than -30 °C.
