flash point of a material

Post by gregg011 » Thu Nov 28, 2019 11:18 am

I have a substance which states:
'Flash point 77 TOC (Tag open cup)'
Does this mean that the substance will ignite at 77 degrees in an open atmosphere?
I have not come across this terminology before.
Any guidance on this?
Many thanks in advance,
Gregg..
