Small-scale flash point

ASTM D3278 IP 534 FLASH POINT OF LIQUI DS BY SMALL SCALE CLOSED-CUP APPARATUS
These test methods cover procedures for determining whether a material does or does not flash at a specified temperature or for determining the lowest finite temperature at which a material does flash when using a small scale closedcup apparatus. The test methods are applicable to paints, enamels, lacquers, varnishes, and related products having a flash point between 0 and 110°C (32 and 230°F) and viscosity lower than 150 St at 25°C (77°F).

ASTM D3828 FLASH POINT BY SMALL SCALE CLOSED CUP TESTER
These test methods cover procedures for flash point tests, within the range of –30 to 300°C, of petroleum products and biodiesel liquid fuels, using a small scale closed cup tester. The procedures may be used to determine, whether a product will or will not flash at a specified temperature (flash/no flash Method A) or the flash point of a sample (Method B). When used in conjunction with an electronic thermal flash detector, these test methods are also suitable for flash point tests on biodiesels such as fatty acid methyl esters (FAME).

ASTM D7236 FLASH POINT BY SMALL SCALE CLOSED CUP TESTER (RAMP METHOD)
This test method covers the determination of the flash point of aviation turbine fuel, diesel fuel, kerosine and related products in the temperature range of 40 to 135°C by a small scale closed cup apparatus.

IP 303 (obs)

IP 523 ISO 3679 DETERMINATION OF FLASH POINT – RAPID EQUILIBRIUM CLOSED CUP METHOD
This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the closed cup flash point of paints (including water-borne paints), varnishes, paint binders, adhesives, solvents, petroleum, and related products having closed cup flash points within the range of -30 °C to 300 °C

IP 524 ISO 3680 DETERMINATION OF FLASH/NO FLASH – RAPID EQUILIBRIUM CLOSED CUP METHOD
This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the ability of paints (including waterborne paints), varnishes, paint binders, adhesives, solvents and petroleum and related products, when maintained at a selected test temperature within the range of -30 °C to 300 °C, and under the conditions of test, to yield sufficient flammable vapour at this temperature to cause ignition on the application of a test flame in a standard manner.
