Flash point

Flash point has a few different definitions, depending on the regulations. Canada’s CCCR, 2001 regulations define it as follows:

“Flash point means the minimum temperature at which a substance gives off a vapour in sufficient concentration to ignite under test conditions.”

Whereas the GHS purple book (6th edition) defines it as follows:

“Flash point means the lowest temperature (corrected to a standard pressure of 101.3 kPa) at which the application of an ignition source causes the vapours of a liquid to ignite under specified test conditions.”

Canada’s Hazardous Products Regulations (Canada’s GHS implementation) uses a similar definition:

“Flash point means the lowest temperature, corrected to the standard pressure of 101.3 kPa, at which the application of an ignition source causes the vapours of a liquid to ignite.”
