Flavors and Fragrances
Companies in industries such as Food and Beverage, Home and Personal Care, and Health and Wellness advance their brands by providing unique and differentiating taste and scent ingredients to create and reproduce their products while keeping them inline with global and local regulatory standards.
Along with quality and delution control, flammability can also be a consideration as flavor and fragrance essences and compounds typically contain some component that is volatile and has a low flash point. The preferred method in most regulations is the equilibrium method known as the Small Scale Closed Cup Flash Test. It is documented in ASTM D3828 and D3278. The great advantages of the equilibrium method for this industry are the small sample sized used and the short amount of time required for testing. In addition, our ActiveCool series can be made to reach flash points as low as minus 30 degrees centigrade.
