RECOMMENDATION OF FLASH POINT METHOD FOR EVALUATION OF FLAMMABILITY HAZARD IN THE TRANSPORTATION OF FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS

The report consists of recommendations, with supporting data and reasoning, for use of the Tagliabue (Tag) Closed Cup Method to determine the flash points of flammable liquids for transportation hazard classification purposes. It presents comparative data for Tag open cup and Tag closed cup flash points and for Tag closed cup values and those calculated from lower flammable limits. It compares repeatability and reproducibility of several types of testers. The behavior of mixtures is treated along with that of neat liquids. The report does not include a separate bibliography, but does cite a number of significant references.(Author)
