||The flammability of vaporized mixtures of water with n-butyl alcohol, butylene glycol, ethanol, methylpyrrolidone or n-propanol was tested. The selected substances are used as solvents in lacquers. The mixtures were vaporized with a pressure of 10bar to droplets with a diameter of about 50µm or less. In the ensuing flammability tests, the mists ignited at lower temperatures than was expected from the flashpoints of the unvaporized pure solvents or mixtures of water and solvents.
