Flash Point Testers determine the safe mixing and application temperature values of an asphalt binder. Flash Point Testers measure and determine the lowest point at which a test sample’s temperature and vapor pressure become ignitable in air. A sample is placed inside the test cup and heated at a precise rate. A test flame is then passed across the cup to determine the lowest temperature at which the vapor will ignite.
Flash testers are available using the Cleveland Open Cup or Tag Open Cup Flash Point Methods.
