Determination of flash point - Abel closed-cup method
|Publication Date:||15 April 2013|
|ICS Code (Petroleum products in general):||75.080|
This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the manual and automated closed-cup flash point of combustible liquids having flash points between -30,0 °C to 75,0 °C . However, the precision given for this method is only valid for flash points in the range -8,5 °C to 75,0 °C.
This International Standard is not applicable to water-borne paints.
NOTE 1 Water-borne paints can be tested using ISO 3679.
NOTE 2 See 9.1 for the importance of this in avoiding loss of volatile materials.
NOTE 3 Liquids containing halogenated compounds can give anomalous results.
NOTE 4 The thermometer specified for the manual apparatus limits the upper test temperature to 70,0 °C.
