Flash point:
> 172 - < 174 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 992 Bar
  Flash point observed (ISO 3679) (measuerd) Pressure effect correction Atmospheric pressure the day of determination Corrected flash point, value at the nearest 0.5°C
Esterol A N° 0048/08, lot 0806159 172.5 °C 0.6°C 992 mbars 173.0°C


The quality criteria is fullfiled following the standard guidelines , and the equipment is regulary checked.

Corrected at the pressure of 101.3kPa, flash point of Esterol A was 173°C +/- 1°C
