This statement is not accurate. In fact, with the water miscible washes
described above, water may actually lower the flashpoint. The only true
way to determine a products' flammability is to flash test it.
The test method most accepted is tag closed cup.

If I can clarify any further issues, please do not hesitate to contact me.
