*this data point was determined by the preliminary test and was not used for the determination of the final flash point
**this data point was determined by heating rate 5.5 K/min, as proposed in DIN EN 2719

The mean flash point correct to 1013 hPa is 80.89 °C.
The final flash point rounded down to 0.5 °C is 80.5 °C.
