Outlining the challenges that common flashpoint methods present for fragrance and flavor manufacturers.

Valuable fragrance and flavoring chemicals are often flammable liquids because they are based upon, or diluted in, alcohol or other flammable organic solvents.

Due to their flammability, the transportation of these chemicals is commonly regulated under government rules for the transportation of hazardous materials such as the United States Department of Transportation and its Code of Federal Regulations. 

During Flavorcon Virtual 2021, "Why Flashpoint is Critical for Your Transportation and Regulatory Requirements" features Petrolab Company's Richard Palmer.

Palmer outlines how the transportation of these products requires the manufacturer to classify the flammability based upon their flashpoint and the challenges that common flashpoint methods present for fragrance and flavor manufacturers.
