Safer Flash-Point Testing
Grabner’s MiniFlash is a flash-point tester with a continuously closed cup that requires only 1mL of sample to function.

Flash point testing within the MiniFlash was developed according to ASTM D6450 and D7094, which give results equivalent to ASTM D56, D93 or ISO 2719, and are used worldwide with a wide range of substances.
