This International Standard specifies a method to determine the flash point of paints, varnishes, paint binders, solvents, petroleum or related products.
This International Standard is not applicable to water-borne paints which may, however, be tested using ISO 3679.
The method is suitable for use over the temperature range - 30 °C to 110 °C, depending on the use of different apparatus listed in Table 1.
The interpretation of results obtained from solvent mixtures containing halogenated hydrocarbons should be considered with caution, as these mixtures can give anomalous results.

Directives and Regulations

When the standard is harmonized under a directive or regulation, the word Harmonized appear. When such an inscription does not appear, it means that the standard is related to / supporting the relevant directive or regulation.


Directive 2008/68/EC of the European Parliament and of the council of 24 September 2008 on the inland transport of the dangerous goods
