What Does Combustion Point Mean?
The combustion point of a particular substance refers to the lowest temperature at which that substance vaporizes to become a flammable mixture in air. At the combustion point, the vapour from a particular substance can ignite when mixed with air. Below the combustion point it cannot ignite. The temperature of a substance must reach combustion point or higher to form a combustable vapour and ignite in air. Combustion point might also be referred to as a flash point.
