Flash Point Reference Materials


ARO Scientific has created certified reference materials to support safety testing for liquid fuels, liquid lubricants, and other flammable materials. 

Why is flash point important?

The flash point of a liquid is defined as the lowest temperature, corrected to a barometric pressure of 101.3 kPa, at which a substance generates enough vapor to form a vapor/air mixture that can be ignited with an ignition source. Flash point data is used for assessing the safety of liquid fuels, liquid lubricants, and their mixtures, for example, shipping and safety regulations to define “flammable” materials. Flash point data can also indicate the possible presence of highly volatile and flammable material in a relatively non-volatile or non-flammable material.
